Share this article


More people than ever before are travelling into Dublin city centre by bus, train or tram every morning.

The latest set of figures made available show over half all journeys into the city are made on public transport.

According to the 2017 Canal Cordon Report, record numbers are also cycling into the city centre.

During a count last year, 12,447 people cycled into the city centre - the highest number recorded since the Canal Cordon Report began in 1980. 

The number of people coming into the city by private car has dropped from almost 65,000 in 2016, to 61,694 in 2017.

Owen Keegan, CEO of Dublin City Council, believes the figures show "the incredible value of the additional bus priority measures in the City Centre implemented on the north and South Quays and the resultant reduction in journey times for bus users."

Anne Graham, NTA Chief Executive Officer described the figures as "very encouraging" and "a clear indication that people in Dublin are responding positively to the services that transport operators are providing every day."
