    Hi,
    I'd be grateful if anyone could share their experiences of using the LUAS green line heading north in the mornings, I'm considering attending TU Dublin Grangegorman campus from September and I'd like to know if it's something I can possibly do.
    Thanks

    Why couldn't you do it?

    It's a simple case of getting on Luas at some point and getting off at grangegorman.

    Sorry, I should have been clearer, I've heard that the LUAS is often way over capacity at rush hours, it's not a very appealing idea, cramming onto a tram every morning and evening, it's a quality of life issue really

    Where are you coming from?

    Lots of people manage it every day. It'll clear out significantly in town. You'll be near the start of the line coming home so could/should be seats available.

    Why not study quantum mechanics at home instead? That way you’ll eventually be able to invent time travel and a matter transporter so you’ll avoid peak time congestion, eventually

    Welcome to adulting. If you're lucky enough to have transport going direct to your college, go for it. You'll probably have more flexibility on your hours than most workers, so you won't be in rush hour traffic every day.

    Or get a bike if you're feeling energetic. Or get an eBike if you're not.

    There are only three or four stops coming from the Cabra end to grangegorman.
    If you’re coming from the other direction it will empty in town.

    A slightly packed luas isn’t a quality of life issue by the way :) but if it is for you I understand. Red line is for busier and prone to being crowded than the green in my experience and I use both lines weekly all week.

    I know a couple of people who are having to move up there in September, although they have been told it might be delayed until the new year.

    Anyway, both have done their IBT and will have mopeds before hand, they are not near the Luas though.

    If you aren't doing a 40 hour a week course (they are rare) you are unlikely to have to deal with rush hour traffic on a dailly basis as you won't have a 9am lecture every day. If you hit rush hour on the way home spend an hour in the library studying. It will stand to you in your degree and dodge the congestion.

    Congestion is very bad at rush hour and it's generally very low outside rush hour.

    without knowing where youd be getting on or where your starting point is (to suss out other options) its not really a question anyones going to be able to advise on
