Staying Safe Together
Did you know there are many ways to stay safe on Luas and around Luas?
By working together to report incidents of anti social behaviour on board the trams and at the Stops we can reduce the number of incidents occurring.
Luas is a safe, frequent, clean and reliable transport service which last year transported over 32.4 million people.
Let's all work together to keep it this way.
