The MacCurtain Street Public Transport Improvement Scheme aims to support economic activity and enhance access to the city centre through significantly improved options for walking, cycling and public transport.

The scheme, which was officially opened by Tánaiste Micheál Martin in November 2023, has delivered public realm improvements and the construction of new and improved bus, pedestrian, and cycle facilities.  Revised traffic arrangements are now implemented on the city quays and on MacCurtain Street and adjoining streets to make the area more accommodating for shoppers, pedestrians, and cyclists.

The Cork City Council scheme, funded by the National Transport Authority, is an integral part of the transition to a more sustainable transport system in Cork.
