Go Ahead Ireland accepts passengers with assistance dogs. They must wear a harness or a jacket so that the driver is aware that they are an assistance dog. There is no limit to the amount of assistance dogs a driver can allow on board, as long as there is space. It is important that the assistance dog does not block the aisle or seats.
There is space for one wheelchair on the lower floor of the bus.
Please be advised that if you use a mobility scooter you will need a permit. This is to ensure that the scooter is passed as safe to travel and because not all mobility scooters can be accommodated due to their size.
Go Ahead Ireland participates in a Travel Assistance Scheme for the Greater Dublin Area which helps you use public transport on your own. An assistant will accompany you the first few times to give advice and help navigate the network. This scheme is available to Go Ahead Ireland, Dublin Bus, Irish Rail and Luas.
For more information on accessibility, please visit the Go Ahead Ireland website.
For service and operational updates we recommend following @GoAheadIreland on Twitter.

Can Go-Ahead Ireland tickets be honoured on Dublin Bus services in the event of a breakdown or disruption in service?
No, Dublin Bus will not accept your Go-Ahead Ireland ticket. Should such a situation occur, the customer is advised to contact Go-Ahead Ireland to get a refund. Details are at https://www.goaheadireland.ie/
Who sets bus fares? All bus fares are set and approved by the NTA/Transport for Ireland.
Bus Stops On routes where Go-Ahead Ireland takes over Dublin Bus routes, the flag or head-plate of the bus stop will have blue and white TFI Bus livery. Existing bus stops will over time be rebranded as Transport for Ireland stops and upgraded to provide a larger rectangular flag with details of routes serving the stop and a stainless steel pole. During this upgrade process there will be some occasions a new style Transport for Ireland bus stop will be close to a Dublin Bus one.
What is TFI responsible for? Transport for Ireland (TFI) is the NTA’s consumer brand for public transport services in Ireland. It is the integrated brand that helps the travelling public to plan their journeys across Ireland on all modes of transport, via our website, TFI Journey Planner App and TFI Real Time (RTI) App.
