Transport Trends is an annual publication produced by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport’s Economic and Financial Evaluation Unit (EFEU). The document attempts to concisely describe the key trends emerging from the latest transport data and statistics.
The document is arranged in three parts:
Section A: Infrastructure – A broad overview of the infrastructure that makes up the Irish transport system by area: roads, public transport, maritime, aviation and sustainable transport.
Section B: Investment – An analysis of expenditure and revenue associated with transport and recent trends in this context to detail where funding has been targeted.
Section C: Performance – An overview of how the transport system is currently being used in terms of method of travel, distance, passenger numbers, freight and energy use.
