Dublin Bus wishes to advise customers that from Thursday 22 October, public transport will operate at 25% capacity. We will continue to operate a Monday to Friday timetable on weekdays with exceptions to some routes and Xpresso services. However, public transport should only be used for essential workers and essential purposes. 

To facilitate this, customer capacity on board will be limited to a maximum of 17 passengers per double deck bus. On-board signage has been changed to reflect the updated restrictions. We would ask customers to please continue to adhere to our social distancing measures on-board. Services will be closely monitored, and capacity will be added where required.

We would like to thank our customers and remind them to please continue to carefully follow the guidelines set out by the Government and the Department of Health while travelling on our services and that wearing a face covering is mandatory on public transport
