Public Transport Smartphone AppsThe National Transport Authority has developed a National Journey Planner App.
The app provides information on train, bus, tram, ferry and taxi services.
The Journey Planner app provides door-to-door route plans integrating scheduled departures near your current location to any specific destination point.
Users can download the app from the Apple App store, or Google Play store for Android users.
There is also a Real Time Ireland App.
This app allows people to set alerts to inform them when their bus is 10 minutes, or 20 minutes or 30 minutes away from a certain bus stop, so they can plan when to leave home or work.
- The App can inform people when they are approaching a particular bus stop (GPS dependent)
- The App shows combined transport updates from Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, Luas, DART and IarnrÓd Éireann
