David Connolly

Director of Low Carbon Mobility, SYSTRA

Dr David Connolly has been forecasting travel demand and its impacts in the UK and Ireland for more than thirty years. He is particularly interested in how we can reduce the greenhouse emissions from road traffic as quickly as possible (which is likely to imply ‘with as little objection from vehicle users as possible’).

He is a car-owning, public transport-using occasional cyclist who enjoys a nice walk. He owns a Battery Electric car and a large non-LEZ-compliant diesel SUV.
