Mary and her Fianna Fáil colleagues carried out a public transport safety survey throughout the Summer months to gauge the need for increased security on public transport in our city.
These were their findings:
93% witnessed anti-social behaviour
36% victim of anti-social behaviour
80% want Public Transport Gardaí
In light of these findings Mary said “Government is rightly investing in public transportation and we are encouraging people to leave their private car at home and take public transport. However, it is now clear that people feel unsafe. The fact that a significant number of people have indicated that they have either witnessed or experienced anti-social behaviour indicates that those feelings are justified.”
The Dublin Fianna Fáil Parliamentary Party members have presented their findings to the assistant Garda Commissioner, Dublin Bus and Irish Rail and continue on their objective to create a safer public transport experience for the people of Dublin.
