Etiquette on the Bus, Luas and Train

Here are a few pieces of bus, tram and train etiquette that can make everyone’s journey, that little bit smoother. A bus (or Luas / Train) is a shared space and therefore a shared experience. That daily commute can be improved with small acts of self-awareness from you and others.


Etiquette Keep bags off a seat

Please keep your feet off the seat and also your bags!

Your shoes do most of the leg work every day, so having them on the seats can dirty them up. Having your bag on the seat can also takes up space for that person that just needs a sit down after a long day.


Keep those earphones plugged in

Keep those earphones plugged in!

We’re sure your music taste is nothing less than exquisite, but playing loud music can disrupt other passengers’ journeys and take away from that smooth journey we all try to create.

Look out

Be very careful when getting off the bus or leaving a tram stop / train station!

Keep your eyes open for other road users. Slipping on banana peels is comical, putting yourself in danger getting off the bus is not, or as you leave a Luas stop  / train station. Road traffic users are unpredictable, this is why you never know what your stepping into, especially when other road users are involved. So be very careful when getting off the bus/ crossing from Luas/train stops!

Getting on & Getting off the tram (Luas)

When boarding the tram, please wait for people to get off Luas first and then get on: it will be easier and you will have more room.
Please wait until the tram has left the tram stop before crossing the tracks.
Cross at the designated crossing points and always look both ways for approaching trams. Mobile phones and headphones can distract you.

Steer Clear

steer clear- don't distract the driver

Do not distract the bus/tram/train driver!

All of our bus, tram and train drivers are incredibly warm people. I’m sure they’d love to discuss how your day is going, but their concentration is of the upmost importance to everyone’s safety. Both inside and outside the bus, Luas or train. So keep the chats to yourself.

At Stops: Please use the bins provided at each Stop for your litter.
