COMMUTERS can plan their entire journey from door to door using public transport in real time, with the aid of new technology.

The National Transport Authority has launched the app that combines all of real-time information for Bus Eireann, Dublin Bus, Irish Rail, Dart and Luas.

Real Time Ireland can be downloaded free for iPhones, iPads, Android services and tablets.

Ireland is now one of the few countries in Europe with integrated multi-operator transport information available on a national basis.

"Combining live information services across several transport operators is a complex process," said Gerry Murphy, pictured, CEO of the National Transport Authority.

"We developed this app in partnership with Dublin City Council; together, we worked closely with transport companies and local authorities."
