Over the last few years, the number of Luas passenger trips per year has increased by over 10 million and demand continues to increase. Commuter peak-time services, especially those on the Luas Green Line, are in very high demand.

The first extended tram was launched on Mon 14th Oct 2019 at Sandyford Depot and work to convert 26 existing 44m trams into 55m trams is now 50% complete with 13 extended trams now in passenger service.  

By early 2021, the number of trams in the Luas fleet will increase from 73 to 81 with 41 trams being 55m long. Combined, the eight new trams and 26 extended trams will increase capacity on the busiest sections of the Luas network by nearly 30%.
