Revealed: Preferred route for €3bn MetroLink from city centre to Dublin Airport unveiled

TRAINS will run every two minutes between Dublin city centre and the airport when the €3bn MetroLink opens for business in 2027.  It will take 20 minutes to travel from the city centre to Dublin Airport, and the National Transport Authority (NTA) and Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) say the system will be capable of carrying 15,000 passengers per hour in each direction.
