Luas


 
 
The Luas is Dublin's newest public transport system. It has two tramlines connecting Sandyford to St Stephen's Green in the city centre, and Tallaght to Connolly Station. The two lines do not connect to each other.

The Luas trams have been designed with low floors and low thresholds to be as accessible as possible. Wheelchair users should enter through the double doors in the middle of the tram where information on where and how to position the wheelchair is shown. There are two designated spaces per tram for wheelchair users which can accommodate up to four wheelchair users.   Wheelchair passengers should always face the rear of the tram while travelling. These areas have signage to let people know that they are there for wheelchair users if necessary. There is also enough space in the entry and exit areas on the trams for   a number of extra wheelchair users. There is also a range of additional accessibility aids on board, including audio announcements and visible moving signage.

There are a limited number of stations which have been built in a cutting or on an elevated track. These stations have been equipped with lifts in order to make them fully accessible to wheelchair users. The platforms in every station have a tactile strip to indicate the edge of the platform for people with a visual impairment. Guide dogs are allowed on board Luas trams. However, no other animals are allowed.

There are information displays at every station indicating whether there is a tram approaching, when the one after is coming and any other additional information. The vehicles also have large destination displays, front and back.

A number of designated parking spaces are reserved for people with disabilities at the park and ride facilities at Balally, Stillorgan, Sandyford and the Red Cow.

Passengers with a Free Travel Pass travel free on Luas. Children under 3 also travel free. Visit the Luas website for more information on the Luas and accessibility.
