Wheelchair Accessible Routes

The overall percentage of wheelchair accessible vehicles within the Bus Éireann fleet will continue to grow alongside investment in new vehicles. As it currently stands the bus fleet that operates on our Regional PSO services and on City and Town services are 100% wheelchair accessible.

The following is a full list of Wheelchair Accessible Routes

City and Town Services
All of Bus Éireann’s City and Town services have low-floor buses and are 100% wheelchair accessible. Access to the vehicle is via a fold out ramp, and each bus has a designated wheelchair space. An occupied pram or buggy may be parked in this designated space only when it is not required by a wheelchair user.

Expressway Services

While wheelchair accessibility is available on many Bus Éireann coaches operating on Expressway and Regional services, routes may be limited due to constraints regarding accessible bus stops. The introduction of additional fully accessible routes is dependent on the provision of suitable bus stop infrastructure. 

We are working with the NTA and local authorities regarding the design of new bus stop developments, which will facilitate our customers being collected and delivered at these designated bus stops in a safe manner.  We are also working with the National Transport Authority (NTA) regarding the bus station and stop infrastructure and to identify vehicle types best suited to the varying needs of all our customers while also suitable for roads and associated infrastructure.

To reserve accessible transport on an Expressway service, intending passengers should book online at https://www.expressway.ie/journey-search at least 24 hours in advance of travel.
