31 million increase in public transport journeys in Ireland

The number of journeys on subsidized public transport and commercial bus services has increased by almost 31 million since 2013, according to figures released by the National Transport Authority of Ireland.

In 2013, there were 210 million passengers on subsidised Public Service Obligation (PSO) services, while in 2016, that number went up to 236 million.

“The figures we are publishing today are an indication that there is a clear demand for an efficient and reliable public transport service,” said Anne Graham, CEO of the National Transport Authority.
