As Ireland's national bus company, our purpose is to connect people with who and what matters, helping to make life better.

Working with us

It’s an exciting time to be at Bus Éireann. We’re growing our route network, investing in our fleet and transforming the experience we offer customers. We are innovating and changing and as Ireland’s largest public transport company, we are leading the way in how Ireland travels sustainably now and in the future.

We are thrilled to have been named as Ireland's Passenger Transport Company of the Year for the work we did in 2021 to keep Ireland connected, and for winning the Green Impact award in May at the Irish Transport & Logistics Awards.

Whatever your role, your warmth, positivity, commitment and adaptability will make you a trusted ambassador of the Bus Éireann brand. In return, we offer a suite of benefits, including a competitive salary and a defined benefit pension.

We have offices located across Ireland, including Dublin, Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Athlone. Where the role allows, many of our office-based roles are working in a hybrid model, with a mix of working from home and working at a Bus Éireann location.  

Wherever you join us, you’ll feel proud to play a part in our future as we go further as Ireland’s national bus company.
