Priority system given to all Dublin bus corridors.
City buses in Dublin have been given priority at junctions on all bus corridors to provide
reduced journey times and a more reliable service for commuters, according to a statement from Dublin Bus.
The company said the new system, which follows a trial run in several north Dublin suburbs, will result in shorter waiting times at bus stops and will prevent a cluster of buses arriving at the same time.
The Centralised Bus Priority Project lets the city’s traffic control centre access “real-time” on-board technology to hold a green light in favour of a bus approaching a junction.
Dublin Bus says the recently-introduced system has already reduced journeys by up to four minutes.
The company has a fleet of 950 buses.
