Happy Birthday Lua-ey!
Luas celebrates its Tenth Birthday today!
Over 100 million Luas tickets have been issued since its launch in 2004 and passanger numbers have grown from 6.6 million to 30.5million. There are now 66 trams serving 54 stops between the Red & Green line. Luas is currently self financing, unlike CIE companies and does not receive any subsidy from the Government. Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar and Minister of State Alan Kelly will this morning hail Luas as one of the States most successful projects.
To celebrate this milestone, Luas have decided to give €1,000 a day for ten days to passangers who access their Twitter (@Luas) & Facebook feed.
We're offering 10% discount in store today to passengers who produce their Luas ticket/ Leap card today.
Happy Birthday Luas!
