Dublin has appalling street congestion in the city centre, but
the light rail service known as LUAS (the Gaelic word for 'speed')
now offers two lines with numerous stations, many of them giving
easy access to the main sights and places of interest. The city
also has an extensive bus network, with a limited Nitelink service
operating from 1.30am. This, however, is most useful for commuters
to and from the city centre. There is also a rapid transit train
(DART) that links the city centre with the suburbs and seaside
Because most public transport stops before midnight, taxis can
be hard to find in the city centre after 11pm, particularly over
the weekend. Taxis can be hailed in the street, but it is often
easier to find them at taxi ranks or to book ahead by telephone.
Renting a car can be impractical and expensive, although they can
be essential if visitors want to explore off the beaten track on
excursions from Dublin.
