Carriage of Folded Bicycles
Folded bicycles, in their protective carry case or bag, are carried free of charge on Luas trams.
Cyclists should adhere to the following restrictions and guidelines in relation to carriage of folded bicycles;
- Folded bicycles must be in a protective carrying case or bag
- Passengers with folded bicycles must not obstruct doors
- Passengers with folded bicycles must not obstruct aisles
- Passengers with folded bicycles must stay with their folded bicycle at all times
- Folded bicycles are carried at your own risk.
In the event of service disruption or maintenance works affecting Luas services folding bicycles are usually accepted on Luas operated replacement bus services if fully folded, in case or bag and stowed as luggage, subject to space being available.
Carriage of Bicycles
Luas does not permit the carriage of bicycles on trams. There are two reasons:
- The first is that bicycles, other than the folded variety, take up a lot of space. Trams can get very busy and space is at a premium. We have a lot of people
travellingwith pushchairs and mobility impaired users in wheelchairs so most of the time we simply do not have enough room to allow bicycles as well. People often ask why we don't allow bicycles “off-peak” times. This is because Luas can be busy at any time. We carry lots of people late in the evenings when there are events and concerts on in the city. We also get very busy on weekends when there are big sporting events.
- The other reason is that it is not safe. There is nowhere on board the tram to stow a bicycle securely. In the event of a sudden stop or indeed taking off from a stop, a bicycle could fall on passengers. The reason we don't install places to secure bicycles on board is again one of space
as to do sowould take up valuable space for our passengers.
