A new national travel app, which integrates all real-time arrival information services for Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus, Irish Rail, DART and Luas in one place, has been launched by the National Transport Authority.

It is the only app to integrate all real time updates for all of Ireland.

The Real Time Ireland App can be downloaded free for iPhones, iPads, Android devices and tablets.

Gerry Murphy, chief executive of the NTA said: “The Real Time Ireland App makes it easier for people to check when a Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, DART, Train or Luas is due – in one convenient service.  And this isn’t a Dublin-only service – it’s nationwide. 

Public Transport Minister, Alan Kelly TD, also welcomed the development of the app:  “Technology can greatly improve the transport experience and the Real Time Ireland App is a further demonstration of this,” he said.
