parkbytext changing to APCOA Connect at Luas
parkbytext, the account based parking payment system used at Luas Park and Ride locations, is changing over to APCOA Connect.
From Monday 23rd November, parkbytext will change over to APCOA Connect, beginning with Green Line Luas Park and Ride locations . The changeover for Red Line Luas Park and Ride locations (excluding Tallaght) will take place the following week, beginning on Monday 30th November.
