Deadline for Submission: 24 January (Opened 14 November)
Visit :

The Department of Transport has an open consultation on the future of Transport in Ireland and to review Ireland’s sustainable mobility (active travel and public transport) policy.

A recent National Positive Ageing Strategy – Stakeholder Forum highlighted the difficulty experienced by senior citizens when using public transport.

The PPN will also be making a submission if any members would like to forward their submission to us or any comments they would like included in our submission.

An extensive range of background papers on various different aspects of sustainable mobility is available to assist with developing the new policy framework.

Text only and audio file versions of each background paper are also available. Please email if required.
