The Joint Committee on the Environment and Climate Action has been looking at how Ireland can reduce transport emissions by 51% by the end of the decade.

Transport accounts for one-fifth of Ireland's total greenhouse gas emissions and massive changes will be needed to halve that by 2030.

To discuss the recommendations and what Ireland might be able to get done, Kieran was joined by Mark Gleeson, of Rail Users Ireland, Dermot O’Leary of the National Bus and Rail Union and Paddy Comyn, Head of Communications at AA Ireland.
