We provide Real Time Passenger Information with on street signs at approximately 500 bus stops.

You can also access real time information by visiting or

Every bus stop in Dublin has a unique number. You can find this number on the top of the stop or on the pole itself and also on our website. You can use this number to access Real Time Passenger Information online, through our Apps or via text, so you‘ll know when buses are due.

Text your bus stop number to 53035 for the times of the next buses due at that stop. You can refine your search by adding your Route Number, e.g. text your ‘bus stop number’ followed by a space & your route number to 53035. (Costs 30c per message received. Network operator charges may apply, service provided by Open Sky Data Systems.)

Download our official Dublin Bus Apps free from the App Store or Google Play.

A lot of effort has gone into improving our customer information. Our new carousels show route numbers and bus stop numbers in large font, they have maps which help customers with learning difficulties and the colour contrast helps people with vision impairments to read the information more easily.

Bus poles without carousels have a sign which displays the bus stop number in large contrasting number and in Braille allowing all customers using that stop to access information by text. A customer can text the bus stop number to 53035 and get the times of the next buses due at that stop.

Dublin Bus will provide information on request in large print or Braille and easy to read, there will be a delay in getting information to you as information will have to be processed by an outside source.

We can arrange for an Irish Sign Language interpreter to assist with meetings and communication if required.  We  can also provide accessible PDF and word documents.
