Public transport costs

DUE to the rising costs of transport, I am being forced to give up my only mode of transport.

I went to Bus Eireann to price the cost of travelling on their buses, I got approx €11 for one way to Cork compared to €10 for me to travel both ways on my motorbike.

I got €17 approx return ticket to Cork, now it would cost me €5 max going to Cork and €5 again back to Kanturk.

I am including my road tax and insurance in this estimate, €10 for me alone on a big motorbike.

How do you encourage the use of public transport by the masses, with prices like this?
