Temporary Changes to Expressway Services - COVID-19

COVID-19: Customer Information

Amended timetables on Bus Éireann and Expressway routes until further notice

Covid GuidelinesBus Éireann has introduced revised timetables for services across many routes until further notice. These timetables are designed to provide a public transport service across the country for those who need to travel, whilst reflecting the reduced passenger numbers on public transport and the most up-to-date advice and guidance from the health authorities in relation to physical distancing.

To help combat the spread of COVID-19, please follow personal hygiene and social distancing guidelines when on board and take your rubbish with you when you leave the bus. In order to reduce cash usage, we recommend that you buy your ticket online, at a ticket machine or use your Leap card where possible. Thank you.
