Save Our Dart Station Staff
‘Use People Not Machines’
Monday 20th February @ 8 pm
The Royal Marine Hotel, Dún Laoghaire
Speakers include; Richard Boyd Barrett TD

Dart stations are under attack, management of Iarnród Éireann are planning to close the ticket offices in a number of Dart stations in the locality compromising the health and safety of passengers and making it more difficult for passengers needing assistance to travel with ease. Join the campaign to keep our Dart stations manned.

The cull is starting with Lansdowne Road and Grand Canal Dock but spreading to the Dún Laoghaire Area from March, most likely staring with Glasthule and Seapoint stations.
The implications of this go far beyond having a friendly face in your local station; passengers needing assistance will be subject to notice periods in order to use the Dart, discriminating against the most vulnerable in our society. This is unacceptable given that a member of Iarnród Éireann management recently told PBP Councillor Melisa Halpin in a meeting about accessibility that measures are being planned to make travel easier for passengers needing assistance. Removing staff from stations contradicts this statement exposing it as empty rhetoric.
The health and safety of its passengers should be of the highest priority for the company, it is not possible to maintain a safe environment at all times in a staff-less station; Save Our Dart Stations, Use people not machines
People Before Profit Says;
• Keep our Dart Stations Staffed
• Boycott the machines, buy your ticket from the office
• Demand Iarnród Éireann provides a service to passengers needing assistance WITHOUT notice periods
• Health and Safety of Passengers should be paramount
