DIT Campus Life, in partnership with the National Transport Authority, is conducting a travel survey among DIT students and staff. This 3-minute online survey will help to ascertain the transport preferences and requirements for the DIT Community as well as identifying opportunities for Smarter Travel across DIT.  The results of the survey will be compared with our 2009 survey to see how we are progressing with our aim to make travel to DIT more sustainable.


Smarter Travel Workplace Charter

DIT is a signatory to the Smarter Travel Workplace Charter which commits the Institute to take steps to encourage staff and students to use sustainable transport methods to travel to and from college. As part of the Smarter travel work places programme, a working group of students and staff has been established to identify and deliver smarter travel actions across DIT. Some of the things that have already been delivered as a result include:

  • The Cycle to Work Scheme which has been taken up by over 300 staff members
  • Discounts for staff and students have been organised at  local bike shops
  • Grants have been secured to install secure, covered bike parking for DIT Mountjoy Square, DIT Bolton St, DIT Grangegorman and DIT Rathmines
  • Showers for commuters have been installed in DIT Bolton St.
  • A Car-sharing website for DIT has been launched: http://www.carsharing.ie/
  • The transport section of the website has been updated: http://www.dit.ie/campuslife/transport/
  • A public transport map for DIT has been produced and will be distributed at Roadshows around the college this week.
