The Luas is back up running tonight
Both Green and Red line services have resumed tonight ahead of schedule.

LUAS GREEN AND Red line services have resumed tonight ahead of schedule.

Following a test of the track and technical systems tonight a decision was made to open service ahead of schedule.

The Luas will operate in accordance with its timetable for this hour of the night- there is no change to last tram departures or frequencies.

Normal Luas services will recommence in the morning at 5.30am, as announced earlier today.

Luas services have been cancelled since yesterday afternoon – earlier today, it was predicted that the service wouldn’t be back up and running until tomorrow.

As Luas services were cancelled, its passengers were directed to Dublin Bus services, which caused delays and congestions on its routes during peak times this evening.

School Transport Scheme services will also resume from tomorrow, Bus Éireann confirmed.
