Search by Bus Stop Number
Type your bus stop number into the Bus Stop Number search box to the left and click ‘Go’. You’ll get a list of bus arrival times at that stop within the next hour. If you can’t find your bus stop number, you can search by using one of the alternative search options on any page within the Real Time Information section.

Search by Bus Route
If you want to search by Bus Route, simply enter the number of the route you want, say the number 14, and click ‘Go’. Then choose the direction of travel. You’ll get a list of stops to choose from. Pick a stop by selecting ‘view’ to see Real Time Information at that stop.
 
Search by Bus Stop Address
If you don’t know your bus stop number yet, you can search by entering a street address into the bar and clicking ‘Go’. Then pick a stop by selecting ‘View’ to see Real Time Information at that stop.
 
Search by Map
Finally, you can select this button to search for a bus stop by using the map. In order to locate a bus stop, zoom down to the smallest level where all bus stops are displayed. In order to move to a different area either pan around the map or zoom back out, and then zoom back in to display the bus stops. After selecting a bus stop from the map, a separate window opens for that bus stop listing the next departures. Due to the number of bus stops within our network it may take a little for all the  information to load on the map. For quickest search results if you do not know your stop number try searching by bus route or street address.
When you select a bus stop – what happens then?
The results page shows you the bus routes using the stop as well as the destination of each bus, the predicted time of each bus and whether the bus is low-floor accessible. It may also show you that the bus may be delayed with an ‘!’ sign. At the top is the time that the information was sent by the system. You can press ‘Refresh’ to get more up to date results.

SMS
You can also get the time of the next 4 buses from any bus stop on the Dublin Bus network directly to your mobile phone. Just text your bus stop number to 53035 (e.g. text 1234 to 53035). You can refine your selection at busier stops by including your route number, so text ‘bus stop number’, space, followed by your ‘route number’ to 53035. Stop numbers are displayed on the top of all bus stops in the Dublin Bus network,
