Operated by Bus Éireann on behalf of the National Transport Authority, the new VDL LF400 double-deck buses, in the distinctive green and yellow TFI livery are the first of their kind to be equipped with a permanent wheelchair space and priority seating on the lower deck. 

“The new vehicles are more spacious than previous double-deck coaches,” said Jim Reilly, Service Supervisor Cavan, for Bus Éireann. “They have a capacity for 76 passengers, with four priority seats on the lower deck, two of which are folding seats that enable a guide dog to sit alongside a visually impaired passenger. All of the new vehicles also have the latest Euro 6 emissions certificate which reduces carbon emissions by up to 90% compared to those in 2000, continuing Bus Éireann’s commitment to sustainable solutions in towns and cities across Ireland.”
