Public Transport Improvements

In the context of a growing population, a changing economy and a changing environment, public transport has become even more important in offering people choices in how they get around the city.

Over the last number of years with support from the NTA a number of projects have been delivered to enhance and support public transport:

  • Bus priority corridor on St.Patrick's Street
  • 66 new buses
  • Improved routing & frequency of bus services
  • City Fare extended to covers wider area e.g. Ballincollig, Glanmire, etc
  • Leap Card
  • 12.6 million passengers traveled on city services in 2017
  • 2,637 bus journeys each day through the city centre

As part of the National Development Plan a fund of €200 million is available to Cork to invest in public transport to:

  • Improve bus frequency
  • Improve capacity
  • Improve journey time
  • Move towards the introduction of a rapid transit system
