Public Consultation on a Review of Sustainable Mobility Policy

From: Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Open for submissions from: 14 November 2019, 12:00
Closed on: 28 February 2020, 17:30

Deadline Extended to 28th February 2020.

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport is launching a public consultation to review Ireland’s sustainable mobility (active travel and public transport) policy. The review work arises from a commitment in the Programme for a Partnership Government to review public transport policy “to ensure services are sustainable into the future and are meeting the needs of a modern economy”.

The public consultation is designed to give stakeholders, interested parties and the general public the opportunity to reflect on the information and analysis in the papers, to share their views, and to contribute to the development of a Sustainable Mobility Policy Statement.

An extensive range of background papers has been produced looking at various different aspects of sustainable mobility and setting out questions designed to help assist with developing the new policy framework.

Text only and audio file versions of each background paper are also available. Please email sustainablemobilityreview@dttas.gov.ie if required.

The public consultation will commence on 14th November 2019 and conclude on 28th February 2020.

To make a submission, please email responses to sustainablemobilityreview@dttas.gov.ie or send by post to:
