Half of all people travelling into Dublin City Centre in the mornings are now arriving by public transport (bus, rail, Luas) – an increase from 45.9% in 2010. A further 9.4% walk into town and 5.4% cycle in, according to the 2015 Canal Cordon Report, an annual count of people crossing the city’s canals into the city centre. The data is collected annually, in November every year, and is compiled by the National Transport Authority and Dublin City Council.
Fewer than a third – 32.6% – of people travelled into town by car, down from 39.8% in 2010.
The National Transport Authority also published this handy Infographic, to visually highlight the key findings.
