Make it possible to buy electric

Instead of Ireland’s transport emissions being drastically reduced, they are instead soaring. This is unacceptable given that the technology needed to cut Ireland’s transport emissions is already in existence and in use in nations around the world.

Currently, buying an electric vehicle is not a viable option for too many Irish people. If Ireland is to meet our climate change targets, this must change.

Fianna Fáil’s plan to facilitate electric vehicles

  1. A national charging network

    Invest in Ireland’s electric vehicle charging network to ensure that fast charge points are available in every corner of the country.

  2. Update planning regulations

    Reform planning regulations for apartment buildings and commercial spaces to make it easier for EV owners to access charge points.

  3. Make it affordable

    Make it more affordable to purchase an electric vehicle, we will continue to offer the EV purchase grant and offer a 0% Benefit-in-Kind rate for companies providing EVs to employees.

All Issues in Transport

Better Regional & Local Road Network

A good road network, reliable public transport and modern ports and airports, are key to balanced regional growth and Ireland’s transition to a green economy.

Improving Public Transport

Everyday thousands of Irish commuters spend hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic or on overcrowded buses, with no alternative to get to work.

Establish A National Infrastructure Commission

Fianna Fáil has proposed that a new National Infrastructure Commission tasked with planning ahead over a 25 year period beyond the limited 5 year cycle of current capital plans should be established.

Protecting Ireland’s Ports and Airports

two thirds of Irish exports shipping to continental Europe do so via the United Kingdom, owing to faster connection times and the UK land bridge.

Tackling Congestion

To tackle congestion, there has to be viable and dependable alternatives to private car transport. This means investing in Ireland’s public transport network to ensure that all commuters have an easy way to get to work, whether by cycling, hopping on a bus or train, or by walking.
