The company that runs the Luas in Dublin is being called on to introduce longer trams and more frequent services as a matter of urgency.
It comes after a tram broke down on the green line for the second day in a row today, leading to major delays.
We are currently experiencing a delay of up to 25 minutes on the Green Line due to a technical fault on a tram at Stillorgan. Luas tickets are valid on Dublin Bus for the duration of the service disruption. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.— Luas (@Luas) March 14, 2018
Fine Gael Senator Neale Richmond says the carriages are too packed, and people waiting on platforms are watching full trams pass by.

"If you have a tram stopped on the line for two or three minutes, that can lead to half-an-hour delays further back," he said.
