Vandalism – See it, Report it

Nobody wants to see the Luas trams or stops vandalised; not you and not us. 

Every summer Luas sees an increase in vandalism cases; It is unfortunate to see some people finding fun in shattering shelter windows, vandalising Luas lifts needed for customers to access stops or tagging graffiti on Luas trams and platforms, all the while not understanding the consequences of their actions on others, such as Luas passengers and the residents living in the area. 

Whether it’s a tram taken out of service due to vandalism with hate speech, soilage, or a broken window, etc., under Luas protocol that tram is immediately removed from service which then creates a domino effect of service delays for Luas passengers. If a lift was vandalised or deemed unusable due to vandalism or intentional breakage, it can be difficult for the elderly, disabled and people travelling with children to reach the Luas stop. Consequences caused from the actions of vandals can vary, but the result is the same -passengers left disgruntled and Luas unable to provide the promised service to passengers. 

Vandalism and property damage are not only prohibited on Luas and Luas infrastructure by law, but both acts are also unsightly and can make passengers feel unsafe.

You, the community, are our eyes and ears.
