THE MOTORWAY ISSUE

Ireland: Widen motorways because too many cars

Tallaght Main Street

Canada: Prioritize buses because too many cars

Tallaght Main Street

A segregated northbound lane on the M50 could at least be explored. It could provide for an O50 ExpressWay Orbital, paid for with a leap card or tap-and-go debit card and integrated with Dublin Bus. The express laneway could also allow taxis, Bus Eireann, Nitelink, Go-Ahead, private coaches and car-share vehicles. with camera controls to monitor compliance.



THE CANAL ISSUE

THE PARK AND RIDE ISSUE

Park and Rides. Why are there so few of these and why aren't they cheaper?

Tallaght Main1 Street

This example of a Park and Ride in Citywest, Dublin should be replicated throughout the city, particularly with the onset of Bus Connects and Metro projects. For example, there should be a Park and Ride near the Spawell at Jnc11 M50 for those commuter travelling into the city who will approach a Bus Gate closer to the city.

THE FARE PRICE ISSUE

€7 a day with some services left out will never encourage anyone to take several buses rather than their car.

THE DIRECTNESS ISSUE

It is clear that commuting cycling to work, school and beyond is not as important as driving, even when we're within touching distance of the city
