Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Driving Down Emissions with Public Transport

26 October, 2022

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s plan to invest significantly in our public transport system in order to help to drive down carbon emissions and create a safer, affordable, more accessible public transport network. Addressing the underlying problems of cost, accessibility and safety is crucial to encouraging more people onto public transport. Among our proposals to do this include making the 20% fare reduction permanent and cutting the cost of tickets for under 18s by 50%; accelerating the delivery of the Connecting Ireland rural bus plan, to give rural communities more transport options and delivering the total investment needed to make our train stations, bus stations and bus stops fully wheelchair accessible over 5 years.
