Investment in New Trains

In order to support the expansion in rail services planned under the National Development Plan 2021 to 2030, part of Project Ireland 2040, and to cater for growing demand, Iarnród Éireann is progressing two major fleet orders.

41 New Railcars

In October 2019, the Government approved an order for 41 new railcars. These will be additional 22000-class railcar carriages bringing the overall size of this fleet to 275 railcars.

This represents an investment of €150 million, these new railcars will enter service in the Greater Dublin Area from late 2022, providing an overall increase in peak Commuter capacity of 34 percent on routes where they will be deployed. These railcars will benefit:

  • Northern Commuter services (Drogheda/Dundalk to Dublin)
  • Western Commuter services (Maynooth/M3 Parkway to Dublin)
  • South-Western Commuter services (Heuston Commuter and Intercity services, and Newbridge/Hazelhatch to Grand Canal Dock)

Up to 750 Electric / Battery-electric Hybrid Vehicles

In order to support the infrastructural capacity increases delivered by the DART+ Programme, additional rolling stock will be required.

Iarnród Éireann, supported by the NTA, commenced the tender process to order the largest and greenest fleet in Irish public transport history in May 2019 for up to 750 electric / battery-electric powered vehicles over a 10-year timescale.

While purely electrically powered trains are expected to make up the majority of train orders, the tender process allows for the supply of battery-electric hybrid trains too.

This is to ensure that, should funding provision or planning processes see the electrification of the first of the lines be completed beyond 2024, that new trains will be available from that date to meet the demand from commuters.

Ultimately, the overall order will see the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) total rail fleet and up to 80 percent of all heavy rail journeys in Ireland, set for a potentially emissions-free future.

The DART+ Programme is a revolutionary €2 billion investment under Project Ireland 2040 set to double the capacity and treble the electrification of the Greater Dublin Area network, bringing DART travel with all its benefits to new and existing communities.
