ORDINARY MEMBER

Patrick Doyle

Main Modes: Bus, Luas

Patrick moved from Ashtown to Charlestown so he would not have to use the bus as the bus was very crowded through Finglas. He now commutes using the train from Ashtown station to Broombridge / Tara Street to the Luas from Broombridge / Trinity to Harcourt. Overcrowding on the bus that he tried to move away from has now followed him on his train based commute. He wants to see Dublin become a better city for everyone and public transport is a key component for that goal for him after experiencing public transport in other countries.

Claire is a native of Galway but has lived most of her adult life in Dublin & London enjoying various modes of transport options in those cities. Her main mode of getting around Dublin is by cycling so she is a big advocate for improving our cycling infrastructure. As Dublin grows she is passionate about making it a shared, liveable space that we can all enjoy, be proud of & thrive in.
