In many cities and towns in Ireland, public transportation is a great way to get around if you don't have a car or even if you do! It can be faster, cheaper and more environmentally friendly than driving your own vehicle. Here are some of the benefits of using public transportation:
Public transport can save you time and money.
If you’re a commuter who drives to work every day, public transport is likely your best option for saving money on car maintenance and fuel costs. Not only will this help keep your wallet from deflating, It can also save some mileage on your car for when you really need it.
Public transport can also save time. By taking the bus or Luas instead of driving yourself you can avoid heavy traffic in the mornings and evenings.
You don't have to worry about parking.
Parking can be expensive, hard to find and time consuming, especially in Dublin city center! Public transportation makes it easy for you to avoid all that hassle by taking the bus, Luas or train instead of driving yourself.
You can multitask on your commute.
Public transportation allows you to do things while traveling that you wouldn't be able to do if you had to drive. You can read a book, listen to music, watch TV, play games or even learn a new language! Instead of staring at the back of other cars for an hour each morning and evening, you can get that time back to do with as you like, and with most buses these days having Wi-Fi, as well as USB slots for charging phones or laptops, you have more options than ever on how to spend that time.
It reduces pollution and contributes to a healthier planet.
Public transportation is one of the best ways to reduce your own pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. It helps you get where you need to go, without contributing to traffic congestion or pollution levels.
With Dublin Bus's Low Carbon Pledge, more Hybrid and fully electric buses are being introduced with older buses to be phased out completely by 2035. So if you're conscious of your own carbon footprint, by using public transport you can rest assured that you're helping to create a cleaner environment.
As we can see, public transportation has many benefits. It is affordable, environmentally friendly and can help you save money on fuel. Public transportation is also a better option for people with disabilities who may not be able to drive themselves.
Cheaper than taxies and driving!
With the number of 24 hour bus routes starting to increase in Dublin and services increasing (albeit slowly) throughout other cities and towns, public transport is a great way to get out for a few drinks and get home without spending a days wages on taxies. Sure it may not be as convenient as jumping into a Taxi, but if you plan your night out you can make massive savings
For example, from Tallaght to Dublin city would cost about €25 each way in a Taxi, making a total of €50. Whereas Dublin Bus will cost you €2 each way for a total of €4. That is an incredible saving of 92%. Even if there are 2 people you are still saving over €30.
