Airport Staff 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.
