There's been a big rise in the number of people taking public transport. Since 2013 there have been almost 31 million extra trips made.
According to figures released by the National Transport Authority, 236 million trips were made on public buses, trains and trams in last year. That compares to 210 million in 2013.
During that time, Dublin Bus trips increased from 112 million to 125 million, Bus Éireann went from driving 29 million passengers to 32 million passengers and Irish Rail passenger numbers grew from 37 million to 43 million.
There was a slightly less larger increase in numbers taking the Luas; those figures rose from 37 million passengers in 2013 to 34 million last year.
Anne Graham, CEO of the National Transport Authority said the figures are "an indication that there is a clear demand for an efficient and reliable public transport service."
"Particularly so when the public transport alternative is environmentally friendly and offers value for money", she said.
The figures come ahead of the roll-out of a one billion euro revamp at Dublin Bus, which it's hoped will encourage more people to switch to taking public transport.
The current proposal is more general services would go into the city every 3 to 6 minutes and you then jump off to join your specific route. It would mean commuters would have to change buses more.
This change to the bus network would mean the likes of the 46A, 19B etc would all be gone and people will have to learn a completely different bus system.
Transport Planning Specialist Jarrett Walker will oversee the project "people will object to having to learn something new, but there is no other way to improve things".
"Please understand that this is a one time challenge for something that has a much more permanent benefit", he explained.
Just this week, traffic rules along large swathes of the quays changed, leaving less room for cars to prioritise buses and to make way for the new Luas line which will open later in the year.
