Update on Dublin Bus Services from 10 May

Published on Friday, May 07, 2021

From 10 May, capacity on public transport will increase from 25% of normal capacity to 50% under new public health measures announced by the Government.

Dublin Bus will continue to operate a Monday to Friday timetable with exceptions to some routes and Xpresso services. 

As our services are likely to be busier than at any time since the beginning of the pandemic we ask customers to avoid travelling at peak times when school children and essential workers are using public transport. We advise customers to plan their journey in advance and allow additional time.

Dublin Bus will continue to carry out an enhanced daily cleaning regime on our fleet, this includes the sanitising of frequently touched surfaces on board. We will also continue to carry out inter-peak cleaning at depots and termini points throughout the city, which will ensure that buses are cleaned during the day and every night

We remind customers that wearing a face covering is mandatory on public transport. We also ask customer to continue to:

  • Follow the social distancing restrictions on board. 
  • Please use hand sanitiser after boarding.
  • Give priority to people with a disability, older people or a pregnant person for seating downstairs when travelling on the bus.
  • Exit through the centre doors when possible.
  • Leave windows open for ventilation.
  • Carefully follow the guidelines set out by the Government and the Department of Health while travelling on our services.

Dublin Bus will continue to be guided by the Government, HSE, Department of Health and other relevant government agencies to inform decisions. We are following all public health instructions that are issued by the Government and the Department of Health.
