Dublin buses get priority at junctions

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.
