Limerick city operates a dual on-street parking payment system that incorporates disposable parking disks and a state of the art pay by phone system. This combination of parking control on the streets is widely regarded as efficient, flexible and most importantly convenient for city visitors.

The traffic section also carries out regular traffic and parking surveys in order to identify trends for forward planning and transportation measures.

The administration of traffic enforcement and parking control is operated within City Hall. The pay-parking section is responsible for management of the City Council’s off-street car parks and enforcement of parking bye-laws on the city’s streets.

In accordance with the objectives set out in Limerick’s Road Safety Together Plan traffic calming schemes are introduced and improvements made. Public consultation and detailed discussion with the members of the City Council are carried out prior to the implementation of these schemes. A firm of consulting engineers were engaged to prepare a traffic management study for the city. This report which has received approval in principle from the City Council is being used to support improved traffic arrangements in the city.

Limerick City Council is working closely with Bus Eireann in the development of bus and cycle priority measures for the city.
