Dublin Bus is the main public transport provider for the Greater Dublin Area (extending as far as Balbriggan, Newcastle, Dunboyne and Kilcock) carrying 150 million passengers each year and transporting 70% of all public transport commuters into Dublin during peak times.
Dublin Bus makes extensive use of OSi mapping for route planning and resource allocation. OSi mapping is also used to display route information to commuters on posters and on the Dublin Bus website. The location based tracking of buses allows for timetable management and to facilitate the reallocation of resources to respond to peak time demands.
OSi Data Bases employed:
- Large Scale Mapping
- Small and Medium Scales Mapping
- High and low level imagery and orthophotography
- National Boundaries and small areas database
