Default Social Democrats Proposals

Taken from the manifeso https://socialdemocrats.ie/manifesto

Rebalancing of capital spending in public transport incrementally, ensuring capital spending on roads is at least matched by capital spending on other forms of public transport on a multi-annual basis;

• Encouraging greater use of public transport by reducing public transport fares (see Cost of Living proposals);

• Building the DART Underground at the earliest practicable date.

• Examining ways to rollout a national smart ticketing system that is integrated, accessible and efficient, and applies to all forms of public transport. We would maintain free travel for those over 66;

• Ensuring focus on suburban and hinterland commuter transport in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and other urban centres; working to provide greater reliability and frequency of services to move people out of cars;

• Continuing the development of light rail and tram services where they are needed, along with the rollout of Bus Rapid Transit in specific urban centres;
We are the passengers
