The Luas

Luas - William Murphy - cc

The Luas (which means “speed” in Irish) is the name of the Dublin tramway. Ideal for quick trips in the city centre, this tramway is another alternative to get around without the need for buses or DART… With a price equivalent to those of the capital’s buses, the Luas has been serving more than 90,000 passengers every day throughout Dublin since 2004, thus relieving the high demand for public transport…
