Introducing Limerick Smarter Travel

Community Programme

A unique opportunity for our community Limerick City is fast becoming one of the most progressive Irish cities in the field of healthier more sustainable travel and was awarded the title of Ireland's first Smarter Travel Demonstration City in a national competition funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTT&S) and co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) under the Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013. The means to deliver Due to the designation, the city will receive funding of €9million from the DTT&S/ERDF, over five years. Limerick City and County Council in partnership with the University of Limerick, now have the means to distribute a complimentary suite of infrastructure and behaviour change measures to support and encourage people, within schools, campuses, workplaces, and communities, to plan for and use healthier more sustainable modes of travel. Limerick Smarter Travel hope that the infrastructure and behaviour change measures make a significant improvement to the community, while leading the way for similar sized cities in Ireland and across Europe. On behalf of their community Limerick Smarter Travel acknowledge your the support they have received It is important at this time to acknowledge the valuable support of the business community, the wider education community and the residents of Limerick in making the successful funding application. It was hard work but we did it. Thank you! Lets make a difference together To this end the team at the newly formed, Limerick Smarter Travel office, located in heart of the city centre, look forward to continuing their work with schools, campuses, workplaces and communities, across the demonstration area, while supporting individuals, groups, and organisations interested in planning and using healthier more sustainable modes of travel.
