About Us

Bus Éireann helps people all across the country make over 107 million journeys every year, as Ireland’s national bus company, our purpose is to connect people with who and what matters to them, helping to make life better.

Almost 3,000 people make up the Bus Éireann family and live our values of safety and of putting you, our customer, first. We strive to provide a transport service of the highest possible standard with a focus on quality and safety.

Bus Éireann has inherited a proud tradition of service that dates back almost to the foundation of the State.

In 1926, the Irish Omnibus Company was founded to develop a nationwide network of bus services under contract to Great Southern Railways. Over the years, the company changed and evolved, eventually becoming the Road Passenger Division of CIÉ. When CIÉ was reorganised in 1987, bus services outside Dublin became the responsibility of a separate subsidiary company, and Bus Éireann was established.

For more than 90 years, the national bus network has been an integral and essential part of Ireland’s transport infrastructure. Bus Éireann continues to build on its tradition of public service and transport expertise to give the people of Ireland a public road transport system of which they can be justly proud.

We are committed to delivering a consistently excellent customer experience through the dedication and skill of our people, while ensuring that we remain competitive.

Our goal is that by 2024 we will be the most customer-centred and sustainable transport company in Ireland, with services provided by people who believe in Bus Éireann as a great place to work.
