Dublin Transport

By now, people living in Dublin must have seen the cool appearance of election posters everywhere, esp. on the electric poles :) ; the elections being scheduled for May 24, 2007, the announcement came last weekend and in one night, there were posters all around. Anyhoo the post is about transportation, Irish Times is reporting that SF (Sinn Féin) has unveiled a new Transport Policy for Dublin. Read Here. Hihglights are: 500 new Dublin buses, new rail networks, abolish motorway and toll roads & more investment on M50, among others.

One thing, which I consider very important for an efficient public transportation is the connectivity between different mediums of transportation, which is probably missing in here.

What do think you about it? Is it good enough?

    I agree with you Mohan! The connectivity between transport is important. but what is also very important is to communicate the very information of the actual transport network to users, especially to new users and foreigners.

    For example, it is quite a nightmare for bus users to figure what bus to take for a particular destination. Saying otherwise, it is very very annoying that there is no comprehensive map of the bus network. However there is apparently a new website which is trying to fullfil that need, (www.dublincitybus.com), it is apparently still under development (bus network is incomplete) but I think it already helps a lot!
