Dublin might be one of the only European capitals without a subway system, but that doesn’t relegate visitors to taking expensive taxis or renting cars. Since 2009, dublinbikes has offered 44 central locations with bikes for rent (€2 for a three-day ticket, Mastercard or Visa only). Other local forms of transportation include the DART train ($3–$4) used to reach outlying neighborhoods, and the towns of Howth Harbor, Sandymount, and Dún Laoghaire, or the LUAS trams ($2.40–$4.20) used to reach Smithfield, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and a neighborhood with local bars and polished restaurants called Ranelagh.
