Why can they not just put the whole Greater Dublin Area(even if its just IE and not Luas for the time being) on all the machines on all lines.

The ticket machines in Newbridge are a complete waste, they serve little or no function. You cannot get a weekly ticket, nor can you get a ticket to the city centre(most people want to go past Heuston) including the luas.

My point is that any ticket that the ticket office can sell should be on the machines, within reason

Needless to say it has been asked for, 15 months ago, still nothing but the promises are getting ever more interesting

The TVM is not designed as a ticket office replacement

They may not be a ticket office replacement but their purpose is to reduce queues. In places like Newbridge, Kildare they have had no effect on reducing queues as they do not sell weekly/monthly tickets or tickets to the city centre. It's a joke, these machines are a waste of money
