daa gathers statistics on passenger travel but also carries out an annual survey of Airport staff travel habits. The pie-chart below outlines the percentage breakdown or modal split of passenger travel habits to the Airport. The table shows how staff travel habits have changed slightly over the years, with a decrease in public transport numbers in 2012 and an increase again in 2014. This shows that the increased number of Bus routes available to the Airport benefits staff as well as our customers.
General Public Travel Habits
Driving a car still remains the main mode of transport used to get to work today at 3 in 4. Car usage has increased from 64% in 2010 to 67% in 2014. Those from outside Ireland are less likely to use a car and have a higher usage of non-car transport, in particular bus/taxi. However, after seeing a decrease in the amount of staff using the bus to get to work from 21% in 2010 to 18% in 2012, this has slowly begun to increase again with 19% in 2014.
On a positive note there was a slight increase in those choosing to cycle to work in 2014.
Increasing the public transport mode share of employees is challenging.The 2014 figures show a slight increase in bus patronage amongst employees since 2012. After a slight decline in 2012 the figures now show that the number of people cycling to work has doubled in 2014.
