Useful Bus Information

Below is some general information for visitors to Dublin. Hailing a bus may seem like a simple task but different countries have different ways of doing things and many visitors to Dublin don't realise that they have to hold out their arm or the bus may not stop! We also provide information on getting off at the correct stop, finding Dublin's famous Temple Bar district and connecting with Dublin's transport interchange hubs.

Hailing the Bus

Please hold out your arm as the bus approaches to show the driver that you wish to board his bus. Several Airlink bus stops in the city are used by a number of other Dublin Bus routes, and so the Airlink Express driver may not realise you wish to board his bus unless you signal in this way. This is the normal way to hail any bus in Dublin city and if you do not hold out your arm the bus may well continue past without stopping.



How will I know when to get off

A list of bus stops for both routes is shown on the bus in several locations. There are audio announcements on approach to each stop and a second audio announcement is made as the bus reaches each stop. There is a television screen on both the upper and lower decks which display a visual confirmation on approach and on arrival at each stop. You are also welcome to ask the driver for assistance if you are unsure of which bus stop or route you should take, however please do not speak to the driver while the bus is moving.
