Parts of Luas Red Line service reopen following suspension due to 'technical problem'

Dublin Bus is accepting all Luas tickets.

Updated Nov 9th 2019, 11:00 AM

SOME SERVICES ON the Luas Red Line have been suspended due to a technical problem, the company has said. 

It apologised and said all Luas tickets will be valid on Dublin Bus. The Green Line has not been affected and is operating as normal. 

Earlier this morning, the operator said all services on the line were suspended but has since confirmed some stations are now being serviced. 

In a post on Twitter, it said: “Red Line services currently running between Blackhorse – The Point. There’s no Luas Service from Tallaght/Saggart – Blackhorse. Alternative Bus services available for this route and Luas tickets are also valid on Dublin Buses.”

The company previously said: “Red Line Alert: Please be advised there are currently no Luas service on the Red Line due to Technical problem. Luas tickets are valid on Dublin Bus. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.”

Earlier this week, the same Red Line was also disrupted after a driver parked their car on the tracks at the Rialto stop.

Two weeks before a similar incident occurred when another driver parked their car on the Luas tracks at the same station.
