Public transport set to return to 100% capacity from next week

Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan has said that all public transport in Ireland will return to 100% capacity from next week.

Ryan is to propose to Cabinet that from next Wednesday, the current 75% capacity on public transport be lifted, subject to public health advice.

-AD-

Capacity on public transport rose from 50% to 75% on July 19th.

The change will apply across all public transport operators including Dublin Bus, Luas, Bus √Čireann and Irish Rail.

The move towards 100% capacity was originally planned to take place on August 5th, but was scrapped due to the rise of the Delta variant.

-AD-

The move comes as Government is due to decide on the updated roadmap for easing Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland.

An official announcement on the roadmap is due next Tuesday.
