LUAS.. Tips (21)

Trams

TheLUAS Tram system is new to Dublin - I didn't try it. The taxi driver didn't like it - saying it had caused a lot of disruption to the city (and I guess taken some of his customers) . I expect he'll get used to it.

Tickets can be bought from ticket vending machines at LUAS stops or from selected retailers - you MUST buy a ticket before boarding.

The system is divided into two zones, Red and Green. The Red Line connects Tallaght to Connolly Station and the Green Line connects Sandyford for St Stephen's Green.

Prices for 7 day tickets within specified zones start at 10Euros for adults and 6Euros for children and 9Euros for students.

Smart looking and quick

This is the newest addition to the Dublin transportation system. I didn't actually ride the LUAS as it's called, but it runs just like the T in Boston on trolley tracks.

It has various stations over Dublin and you can pick it up right at Hueston Station.

Luas

The LUAS (means speed in irish) tramway is now ready to rumble.

There are 2 lines running now - Sandyford to Stephens Green is the Green line, and Tallaght to Connolly station is the Red line.

The fare depends on how many zones you will be passing through. You can calculate your fare on the Luas site.

The red line will take you from the City Centre (Connolly Station/Bus Aras/Abbey St directly to Heuston Station)

However the 2 lines do not meet up, which is a bit annoying.

The LUAS itself is just a normal tram, that goes in 10 minute intervals.

LUAS

The Luas (the word means fast in Irish) is a brand-new tram system that first started operations in July 2004. The second line is due to come into service in a few months.

The service covers areas that previously had only bus service: we saw some of the first trams in action, and the reviews from most people were very positive. They seem to have done a good job of providing parking at suburban stations so that people choose the Luas instead of driving.

Luas

Luas is Dublins new Tram transport line. We are very proud of it. Luas passes through lovely parts of Dublin. Get on at Stephen's Green as go to the end of the line. On the way back stop off at places you thought looked nice. Trams run every 10 minutes and only take about 30 minutes to get to the end of the line.
