Better public transport means fewer cars

Everyday thousands of Irish commuters spend hours in bumper to bumper traffic or on overcrowded buses, with no alternative to get to work. It is harming our economy and making it harder to get the right people to the right jobs.

A lack of public transport means that a high percentage of people rely on private cars to get to and from work, drop their kids to school, and take leisure trips. As a result, at a time when emissions should be falling, they are instead rising year on year. We need better transport solutions.

Fianna Fáil’s plan to improve public transport

  1. A National Infrastructure Commission

    Improve public transport by first establishing a National Infrastructure Commission to plan for Ireland in the long-term.

  2. Smarter bus routes

    Improve Ireland’s networks of bus lanes and eliminate pinch points from bus routes.

  3. Freeze fares For 3 years

    Freeze fares for three years to make public transport a more financially attractive transport option. To encourage young people to get into the habit of using public transport, we will also drastically reduce the price of young people’s fares.

  4. Smarter payment solutions for public transport

    Launch an innovative new mobile and online payment platforms to make it easier to hop on the next bus and introduce a dedicated transport police to keep passengers safe while on board.
