Extra Luas trams needed to ease crowding?

Packed conditions on morning peak time Luas Green Line services should ease from this month with the deployment of additional trams for the Cherrywood extension.

The service frequency will rise from one tram every 4½ minutes, to one every 3½ minutes, between Sandyford and St Stephen's Green. Most trams will continue to run only between Sandyford and St Stephen's Green, with just one in every three trams in the morning peak serving the €300 million, 7.5km extension.

This will give a morning peak frequency of about one tram every 10½ minutes on the Sandyford to Cherrywood section of the line.
