Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711032300, Hardcover)

The restructuring of CIE came just before the Irish economy saw unprecedented levels of growth in the 1990s, becoming the by now legenday 'Celtic Tiger'. One side effect of this was a surge in the demand for public transport. As far as Bus Eireann was concerned, soaring house prices in Dublin led many people employed in the capital to live further and further away to find accommodation they could afford. This brought many new passengers onto Bus Eireann services. The new company was allowed to compete with Irish Railways on express services, a business which led to a rapid growth in the company's fleet of coaches. Since Bus Eireann was established in 1987 there has been a significant investment in vehciles and in infrastructure, with new bus stations and depots being constructed. This book traces these developments over the last 20 years looking at the company's fleet and the services provided and how these have evolved.
