As part of a deal with Dublin Corporation, the DUTC agreed to pay them £500 per route mile for 40 years and a minimum of £10,000 per year when the system was fully electrified.

New houses were built within walking distance of the tramway service. Dublin trams proved popular. 137 tramcars ran on 32 route miles of track by 1881 when three companies amalgamated to form the Dublin United Tramways Company (DUTC). On the eve of electrification a typical fare on the horse tram was threepence from Nelson’s Pillar to Clonskeagh. This service ran from 8. 00 a. m. to just after 10.
