Real Time Passenger Information System (RTPI)

Real Time Passenger Information, RTPI, indicating the expected arrival times for the next 3 buses arriving will be made available at over 500 bus stops in Dublin and Cork. The scheme is being undertaken by the Local Authorities and the Department of Transport has arranged funding for the provision of RTPI displays and infrastructure. The installation of RTPI will cater for some key bus routes in Metropolitan Cork. The estimated arrival times of buses as calculated on the Bus Éireann fleet management system will be communicated to the RTPI server based in Dublin City Council which will then broadcast the data to each specific bus stop in Cork. The implementation of the RTPI scheme is being project managed by the National Transport Authority, NTA. The RTPI displays which will be installed at bus stops and shelters in Cork and Dublin are being manufactured by one of the leading variable message sign suppliers based in Ennistymon, Co. Clare.
