Basis for Recommendation

There were no labels present on the doors, warning passengers not to board or exit the tram as the doors are closing. It is noted that Transdev have sent Transport Infrastructure Ireland a proposal for new labels, as a result the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


Transdev and Transport Infrastructure Ireland should develop new labels, for the application on tram doors, which warn passengers of the dangers of closing doors.
