  4. 4. 3 Main Elements to the National Real Time Information Programme 1. Working with Public Transport Operators to ensure accurate predictions 2. Delivering integrated real time information to on street displays in Greater Dublin Area, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford 3. Delivering integrated real time information for Bus, Luas and Irish Rail via www.TransportforIreland.ie, smartphone apps and sms services.

  9. 9.  Uses SIRI ET ( Estimated Timetable ) Dublin Bus     Journey Centric with ref to Timetable contained in VDV 452 Not suitable for use in Displays on Street as no Clear Down. Same updates as with SM but much less data Transfer as it tracks a journey and visits to each stop. Uses VDV 454 ( Estimated Time Table ) Bus Eireann   Not suitable for use in Displays on Street as no Clear Down. Same updates as with SM but much less data Transfer as it tracks a journey and visits to each stop.
