June Bank Holiday Public Transport Arrangements 2021

You can expect changes to public transport schedules if you’re planning a journey over the June Bank Holiday weekend. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled these changes for Dublin Bus, Luas, Go Ahead, Irish Rail (including DART) and Bus Éireann below.

Remember that capacity has now increased to 50% on most services, you are required by law to wear a face covering and it’s advisable to pay your fare through contactless methods. You are advised to check the transport provider’s website for specific times and routes before you travel and to book in advance.

As always, we will keep you updated on any live public transport disruptions on our website. Great news too as we’ve joined Instagram – follow us for public transport updates and road safety and motoring advice.

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe!
