Irish Rail challenge Christmas travel warning as practice passengers must pre-book tickets
All passengers on board will be required to reserve tickets to travel around Ireland this Christmas.
To reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure during the Christmas season, Iarnród annireann has developed new ways to ensure that all trips are safe.
From Friday, 18 December to Wednesday, January 6, passengers will now be required to reserve their tickets if they wish to travel by train.
For those wishing to use Iarnród Éireann’s services at the moment, the company said: “Public transportation should be 50% efficient, and should be used by those who travel on essential items, and please avoid prolonged as long as your travel is necessary”.
Seating on the seats is not recommended, and customers are asked not to sit on the test chairs, to ensure height.
Elsewhere, face-to-face wear is legal for cars and trucks
As always, train tickets can be booked in advance on the Iarnród Éireann page and if possible, passengers are asked to avoid long delays as long as their travel is necessary.
There will be no more train missions on Christmas Day and St Stephen’s Day.
With the exception of these days, the service is fully operational, and uses all available vehicles, in all its forms.
Iarnród Éireann Corporate Communications Manager Barry Kenny said that if customers arrive at a non-reservation facility, they will be reimbursed.
If people have available tickets – such as unofficial return or free travel tickets – they can also reserve their reservations, for free, on this page, he added.
