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.
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 Éireann 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.
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.
