Nearly half of people coming into Dublin City Centre in the mornings are now arriving by public transport choosing the bus, rail or Luas for that journey to work.

Almost half of Dublin morning commute is now taken on public transport. Cycling or walking now accounts for 15% of commuting with a third of people choosing the car which is a fall of some 16% since 2006.

In a report published by the National Transport Authority (NRA) shows that the car is still king of the commute with 33% of commuters still choosing it over any other means.

The report called the Canal Cordon measures anyone passing through Dublin City center and has been compiled since 2006 and shows that all modes are falling apart from Walking and Cycling with the latter more than doubling since the beginning of the study.
