Suburban rail stops in the rundown Broombridge railway station, en route to Maynooth. As part of the government's Transport 21 strategy, the Luas Green Line, part of Dublin's light rail system, has been extended. By extending the Green Line to Broombridge railway station, there are now stops at local areas like Liffey Junction and the new Dublin Institute of Technology campus at Grangegorman.
