Cllr O Riordain launches 'Text your Protest' Campaign against DART Car Parking Fee

This morning I launched my 'text your protest' campaign against the planned introduction of Car Parking Fees in Dart Stations from September. The introduction of these fees will not only penalise those commuters who are willing to use public transport but will inevitably lead to parking problems in residential areas that surround DART stations. This morning I have already received remarkable support from commuters at Clontarf DART station who are extremely angry over the proposal.

I am asking all those who oppose the introduction of these fees to text 'NO PARKING FEE' to 086-8190336 followed by their name and address. The petition will be sent to the Chief Executive of Irish Rail and to the Minster for Transport.
