Getting about.

My favourite form of transport happens to be in my favourite city to visit. It is the Dublin tram (Luas) . Luas is the Irish word for speed. There are two tram lines, one is red and the other is green.

The tram network is incredibly accessible and wheelchair friendly. I was able to use the trams independently apart from needing help initially to purchase a ticket, and there may well have been a way to do this online – which would have got round the fact I couldn’t reach well enough to use the ticket machines.

The trams and the platform allow a level entry, with no ramp required and no gap to worry about. They stop at the places people need to go, such as the hospital, and museums.

All the announcements are made in English and Irish, so by the end a week I was able to recognise all the stop names, and knew the order in which they went.
