The Government has been criticised over the latest public transport price rises.

LUAS fares are expected to go up from tomorrow by around 4% while DART and bus fares are expected to go up by 5% rise later in the week.

The Consumer Association of Ireland says the Government should be doing more to control inflation and keep the costs of goods and services down. 

Its Chairman, James Doorley, has said an independent regulator should also be appointed.
