The second round of public consultation centred on the Preferred Route Options which were identified. These preferred route options brochures are available to view and download below.
The first round of public consultation on the Emerging Preferred Routes took place between June and October 2022. Following the first round of public consultation, the NTA reviewed the almost 3,000 submissions made by the public and engaged constructively with 35 residents’ , business and special interest groups across the city. Community Forums were also established for each corridor to enable a two-way dialogue with local communities to help inform the review process.

First Round of Public Consultation on Sustainable Transport Corridors (STCs) for Cork
Between June 30th 2022 and October 3rd 2022, the National Transport Authority (NTA) undertook the first round of public consultation on initial proposals for the Sustainable Transport Corridors proposed under BusConnects Cork. During this consultation phase almost three thousand submissions were received in total. All of the submissions were reviewed and considered as part of the ongoing design process for each corridor. In addition, we held six Public Information Events, five Community Forums and hosted numerous meetings with approximately thirty-five residents’ groups, business groups and other special interest groups.
BusConnects Cork is a €600m programme of work that aims to transform the city’s bus system, making public transport more accessible to more people. By delivering approximately 91kms of new bus lanes and bus priority and 96km of cycle facilities (one direction) delivering 48km of the cycle network, BusConnects Cork will make travel by bus, as well as active travel, a viable option while also reducing carbon emissions and congestion.
The new corridors will benefit the city in the following ways; create a more efficient public transport network, reduce bus journey times, create a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians, better serve the needs of all road users and create a more sustainable and liveable city.
