Consultation on a Review of Sustainable Mobility Policy
14th November 2019 - 24th January 2020

The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has launched 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.

The Public Consultation on a Review of Sustainable Mobility Policy is available at the link below.

The public consultation commenced on 14th November 2019 and will conclude on 24th January 2020.

To make a submission, please email responses to or send by post to:
