There are lots of different types of transport today in Ireland.

Some types of transport that we can all use are Trains, Trams, Buses, Airplanes, Boats / Ferries, Cars, Horses, Bicycles, Motorbikes, Trucks, Vans and Walking.

In the past, some of these types of transport did not exist. Can you think about how your grandparents travelled?

How they travelled might have meant that the journey took longer and so they had to plan their journey very well.
Do you know how to plan a journey? You can test yourself later and see!

Which mode of transport do you like the best?


How would you decide what transport to take?

You need to consider your choices and weigh up your options according to the following:

  • How fast do you want to get there?
  • What degree of comfort do you wish to travel in?
  • The cost of the form of transport, perhaps you want the cheapest?
  • How it has an impact on the environment?

Think about it

How would you and your family be affected if there were no cars, buses or railways?
