BusConnects aims to overhaul the current bus system in Ireland’s cities by implementing:

  • a network of ‘next generation’ bus corridors (including segregated cycling facilities) on the busiest bus routes to make bus journeys faster, predictable and reliable;
  • a complete redesign of the bus network;
  • simpler fare structures;
  • cashless payment system and a state-of-the-art ticketing system;
  • new bus branding, integrating bus vehicles of different operators and types;
  • park-and-ride facilities;
  • new bus stops and shelters; and
  • transitioning to low-emission vehicles.
