Real Time Bus Éireann


UPDATE 8 Dec 2013

Updated to get Real Time Information from the National Transport Authority which hopefully should be more accurate than the previous information source.

- Expressway and Intercity services linking Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Galway, Limerick, Derry and Waterford and every major town in Ireland.
- Commuter Services into city and town centres.
- Irish Town and City services operating in Athlone, Balbriggan, Cork, Drogheda, Dundalk, Galway, Limerick, Sligo & Waterford.
- Nightrider services, Bus Éireann provides a range of late night services, several nights a week on main routes out of Dublin.

Inaccurate Hardly developers fault for misinformation if its sourced from the nta who only give out timetable times instead of Accurate location of buses. Would be nice if the app used a map and gps to show distance to nearest bus stop, then just click the bus stop to see the info. Instead you have to know the bus number or stop name which is not always obvious in Limerick. (Lots of bus signs non existence here)

Not accurate. I was waiting on the bus. App bus said bus would arrive in 29 minutes. I was already on the bus at this time. Of no real benefit . Also app did not refresh automatically. Had to refresh to get updated time.
