Welcome to the Limerick Smarter Travel Community Page

Thank you for taking the time to visit. On the community page you will find regular, up-to-date, information to help you make more of your everyday journeys on foot, by bike, by shared travel like public transport or car-sharing.  

 

Finding Information

The simplest way to find the information you need is to type key words into the search bar above. 

 

Your community needs your support

Feel free to sign up and/or take part. Simply join 'Initiatives' like Travel Planning. Join or create, public and private smarter travel 'Groups' and  'Projects' of all kinds, ones that you want to support so that more people in our community can feel the benefits.

 

Strength in numbers

Our travel choices all add up. If everyone changed just one journey a week to healthier more sustainable travel think of the difference that would make to our community. This website is designed to inform and inspire, so that making the switch to healthier more sustainable forms of travel becomes a little easier.
