Roadside facilities and roadside information are essential components of a modern bus system. Across the region, the current facilities do not reflect the standard needed to make the overall system attractive and easy to use.
Under BusConnects we will introduce a new style of bus stop to be rolled out across all bus stops in the Dublin region, with better route and fare information provided in each case and with timetable information specific to each stop. All operators will adopt this style and the current assortment of poles at multioperator stops will be removed.
We will install more Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) signs along the new bus corridors and elsewhere across the region, providing accurate next-bus arrival information.
Bus shelter provision will be significantly expanded as part of the BusConnects plan. A large number of additional bus shelters will be provided in new locations, particularly where connecting services are being provided.
