I'm sure the reports were all "everything's fine". In that case, nothing was learned, and the whole exercise was a waste of time.

The point isn't whether events are on once a year or not, the point is when there are events on at all, the transport network schedule is inflexible and what is available is therefore full to...

The reason the streets are (almost) empty, is because you can't get in or out of them.

So what does?

Dublin is a major European city. It's not London Paris or Berlin granted, but it is the main hub of activity in this country, and when there are major public events on at night, the...

Lots of times. At the weekend after gigs at the Point, parties and sports events, it's as busy as a Saturday afternoon, as most major cities are in Europe. Yet there's only nitelinks and expensive...

Neither is operated because of cashflow issues. The Luas Red Line has had no late night service since 2010, because of much overblown "public order" concerns. IE don't operate at all on the 26th due...

Demand on every day of the year doesn't justify service really, as the road network now can carry most people at half the cost, and in some cases half the time.

That said, we still need a...

It's nothing to do with demand or providing extra services, it's adhering to tradition. A tradition that is sacrosanct, in all circumstances.

If it was me, all this safety bull would put me off using the Luas at all. Much easier to jump on a bus and head straight home, than have to walk a fair distance to an obscure transport stop...

You would expect such an "amazing trip" to have at least decent accommodation. Not this one though. You get to spend 11 nights on a patch of grass aka "campsite" in rural Poland, and like it or not,...

1,5 million is almost nothing in Luas terms, and is being stingy for the sake of it. Obviously, the ticket fare increases haven't being the solution to their issues.

My sympathy goes to the...

So the service has resumed today. If they really wanted to thank passengers, they would have made travelling for the rest of the day free, as a goodwill gesture.

Since the disruption began, there's been more seats than passengers on the Luas at all times. They can't allow that situation to continue for much longer. Running the service...

So sanity has returned to Veolia, and they will run the service to/from Heuston. Which begs the question, why wasn't it done beforehand?

Trams can't get to/from Red Cow HQ.

Given where the incident is, it looks like the service could run Citywest/Tallaght-Heuston. Why it isn't is unknown.
