Public Transport Services Overview
The National Transport Authority is involved in the supply of various public transport services in Ireland, be it as the contractor/funder for any Public Service Obligation contracts (such as with Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann and Iarnród Éireann), via subcontracting such as with the Luas service which is contracted for on our behalf by the Railway Procurement Agency, or as the licensing authority in relation to commercial bus services and the small public service vehicle industry, i.e. taxis, hackney and limousines.
Transport For Ireland
The National Transport Authority will develop the Transport for Ireland service as a “one stop shop” for public transport information. Alongside Real Time Passenger Information, the National Transport Authority has developed a National Journey Planner and is delivering the Integrated Ticketing project. These services will make it easier for public transport users, including visitors to Ireland, to access information on all aspects of travel, such as timetables, real time information and journey planners.
