Public bus services in Ireland are licensed and regulated by the Department of Transport. There is a range of public bus transport services in Ireland (both private and State-owned) offering services on a range of routes. Coras Iompair Éireann (CIE) is a state company that operates the largest volume of services nationally - the following information about bus services in Ireland relates only to State-operated services.

Free travel on State bus and rail services is available to everyone permanently living in Ireland that is aged 66 and over. Certain people under that age are also entitled. Free travel is also available on a limited number of services that are operated by private bus transport companies that have opted in to the Free Travel scheme.
Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann Services for Passengers with Disabilities

Both Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann are obliged to provide services to people with disabilities. All new buses and coaches bought by both companies are wheelchair-accessible or designed for easier access. These new buses have features that include a low floor, with a single step entry and kneeling suspension to reduce the height of the entry step. They are wheelchair-accessible, with retractable ramps at the entrance door and priority space for wheelchair users. This space can also be used for a child's buggy. Other features include wider gangways, increased headroom, better interior lighting and heating, improved grip bars, palm activated bell pushes and high visibility electronic destination displays on front of buses. Bus stations have also been remodelled to improve access for disabled people. Visit Dublin Bus for more information about their services for passengers with disabilities.
