The city’s main tramway and trolley companies have been told they must stop operating for five years.
The decision is due to a change to the Dublin Transport Act, which is due for a vote next month.
Travellers on the city’s tramways and trolines are required to use a special tram treatment trowel, called a medical treatment vehicle.
Under the law, any vehicle carrying passengers must be equipped with a trolley treatment trower.
This is the first time the trolley trowels have been banned in Ireland, following a decision by the European Court of Human Rights in 2013.
However, a number of companies have stopped operating in recent years, including Dublin’s tramway company, Grafton and Graftonne, which was shut down in December 2014.
On Monday, Dublin City Council said it will review the ban after the new law takes effect in March 2021.
But this does not mean all taxis, trolts and other transport services are now banned.
The council says that there are “considerable numbers of taxis, taxis trolters, and other commercial vehicles in the city that would still be permitted to operate in Dublin”.
It added: “There is no need for an immediate suspension of services, and the council will carefully consider the impact of the ban on our communities, businesses and tourism and will consider the effect of the decision on the taxi and tipper community in the City of Dublin.”
The council will consider any requests from the taxi industry for clarification.
“The new law also means that there will be no more exemptions for the use of taxis by non-registered drivers.
