DART

The DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) is an electrified suburban railroad initially connecting Howth on the north side of Dublin Bay and Bray in county Wicklow on the south side of Dublin Bay. The line runs through the city centre of Dublin. From the very moment the electric trains replaced the old diesels in 1984 the DART system has proved to be a great success.

In 2000 he DART line has been extended to Greystones where approximately once an hour a DART train terminates. In the northern direction some DART trains run, from the late ninetirs, from Howth Junction to Portmarnock and Malahide. All in all some 52 kilometres of suburban railroad have been fitted with overhead wires to supply the electricity to the DART trains. All other railroads in Ireland are worked with diesels only.

DART extentions

Transport 21 envisages electrification of the Dublin tail networkas far as Ballbriggan, Maynooth and Hazelhatch by 2015. Under CIÉ's Interconnector project, upon this electrification of this line and opening of the Interconnector, the existing the existing Maynooth line service would be replaced by one of two DART lines, running from Maynooth to Bray/Greystones. The service would also be directly connected to the rest of the DART/Commuter network at Dublin Pearse.
