'More attention needed' for carbon emissions in Ireland
Sep 22 2008

"The measures are there in the Department of Transport's Sustainable Transport Strategy, what I am concerned about is a matter of timetabling," Mr Gormley told the Irish Times.
Mr Gormley also said that for buses and bicycles to become more popular, buses must be timely and more efficient, while cycling lanes and routes need to be safer for commuters.
