Published: 17 May, 2024

CIÉ wants to hear ideas and insights from a youth board of Transport Trailblazers and is looking for fifteen enthusiastic, motivated, open-minded and forward-thinking young people to directly influence the strategic planning of Ireland’s largest public transport operator. 

TU Dublin student or staff applicants can be aged between 18-25 years, from all backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, skill sets and locations around Ireland, who use Ireland’s public transport system and have a passion and interest in collaborating to help reimagine Ireland’s public transport system  - for the benefit of all people and the planet, in the short and long-term.

The Youth Board

Youth Board members get to advise on a range of topics, suggesting and contributing new ideas and perspectives, helping CIÉ Group reimagine its operations for a sustainable future. The Youth Board will act as an advisory board. It will have a consultative role providing insights, feedback and suggestions to guide CIÉ. It will address some key challenges and opportunities faced by CIÉ Group - from sharing thoughts on current and future operational issues to reimagining how to encourage the public at large to move from private to public transport.

The Transport Trailblazers will have the opportunity to develop;

During their two-year board tenure, they will be asked to attend quarterly in-person meetings and occasional ad-hoc online meetings; to participate in training; and to share their point of view with CIÉ Group and its operating companies. CIÉ is committing to offer onboarding, training and mentorship to the Youth Board.

As part of the value exchange, CIÉ will also offer a travel concession giving Youth Board members unlimited free public transport across CIÉ platforms during their two year tenure - for average commuters this represents an annual value of €1,000 plus.
