New online train reservations service to be intoduced

A new service is being examined which will allow people in the county to book their seats for trains at peak times. An online reservations system is currently being piloted by Irish Rail for Citygold / first class services. The Department of Transport will expand the system to include standard class peak time services for all the mainline routes, including Kerry. The online reservations service will be in operation before the end of 2004 for special event trains for concerts and major sporting events.
