URGENT: Intercity vs DART

    Hi - there are two trains going from Connolly to Greystones in the next hour.

    17:33 Dep
    Dublin Connolly
    InterCity to Rosslare Europort

    17:57 Dep
    Dublin Connolly
    DART to Greystones

    Underneath both, it says:

    "If this train is an InterCity service it is sold out. Please select an alternative. To purchase DART or Commuter tickets, please go to your local station."

    I don't have a ticket, I just tag on and off with my leap card. Do I have to wait for the 17:57 or can I get on the 17:33? I saw an old thread advising that you could just get on, but that was 5 years ago. I'm really not sure how it works now as I've never had to get trains before :o

    You can get on either.

    Doesn't matter what type of train it is as long as your departing and arrival stations are in the Leap zone, which they are.
