The bus is the main form of public transport used in Ireland today. Overall buses make about 200 million passenger trips on regular scheduled services across the state. These services are provided under Public Service Obligation contracts with Bus Éireann and Dublin Bus and by licensed commercial bus operators. We review the bus companies’ performance in this regard, and publish quarterly performance reports which are available through the menu bar on the left.

Other bus services provided under the Rural Transport Programme came under the aegis of the National Transport Authority in April 2012.
