Improve Public Transport

Every day, 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.

Better public transport means fewer cars.

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 public transport solutions.

Fianna Fáil’s plan to improve public transport

  1. Establish a National Infrastructure Commission.

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

  2. Better bus lane network.

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

  3. Freeze fares.

    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 reduce the price of young people’s fares.

  4. Mobile payments.

    Roll out innovative new mobile and online payment platforms to make it easier to hop on the next bus.

  5. Passenger Safety.

    Roll out a dedicated transport police to keep passengers safe while on board public transport.

  6. More carriages for Commuter trains.

    Improve and order more carriages for daily commuter trains in particular.

  7. Increase DART capacity.

    Invest in the Dart to improve capacity and allow for more passengers to avail of it.
