The National Transport Authority (NTA) published its latest Statement of Strategy
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has today published its latest Statement of Strategy, which sets out the organisation’s objectives for 2023 to 2025. This is the NTA’s fifth such statement detailing our mission and vision and key objectives for the next three years.
Delivery of Transport Infrastructure Projects
The continued delivery of key transport infrastructure projects such as BusConnects, Connecting Ireland, Active Travel as well as the supporting technologies like Next Generation Ticketing, is envisaged in the duration of this strategy, with the NTA’s mission to:
“connect Ireland’s people and places, by providing sustainable transport infrastructure and
services as well as working to reduce transport demand, all helping to lower carbon emissions”
This strategy sets out our key objectives for the next three years, some of which include:
- Supporting initiatives in the area of climate action including the ongoing transition of the public transport fleet to zero emissions
- Continuing to promote equality, prevent discrimination and to protect the human rights of our employees, customers and service users
- Leading transport planning in our cities and delivering the BusConnects networks of services
- Supporting partners to deliver Metrolink, DART+ and active travel nationwide
Anne Graham, CEO of the NTA said: “Following a challenging period for public transport, due to Covid 19, we have observed just how essential a functioning public transport system is to going about our daily lives and to reducing our carbon emissions.
“The public transport sector will play a major role in the Government’s Climate Action Plan which aims to reduce transport carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. This will be achieved through increased active travel and public transport use, reduced transport demand, electric car adoption and the transition of the public transport fleet to zero emissions.
“NTA will also play a central role in delivering the Department of Transport’s National Sustainable Mobility Plan, which sets out detailed actions to deliver improved sustainable transport infrastructure and services.
“NTA has also grown very significantly over the last few years and it’s important that we retain our core values and culture of inclusivity and diversity, as we develop the organisation further over the next three years.”.
