Legislation requires that the National Transport Authority “shall for the purposes of promoting public transport, design, develop and secure the implementation of a single brand to be used by all public transport operators providing services in accordance with a public transport services contract with the Authority.”

Under the BusConnects programme, the exterior and interior of buses, known as the bus livery, will be standardised across different operators to give the bus system the feeling of a modern, effective public transport system.

Some of these elements are already underway in Limerick. Many older buses with Bus Éireann livery have been replaced by newer yellow and-green TFI buses.
