Dublin Bus revenue hits €11m mark
DUBLIN Bus increased revenues last year to more than €11m as passenger numbers continue to rise.
The company recorded a financial surplus from €0.5m in 2013 to €11.6m, putting its efforts down to growth and cost-reduction measures.
The company - which suffered a series of strike days this year - also enjoyed an increase in passenger numbers to 118.6 million in 2014. This was an increase of 4.3 million on the year before.
In a statement, Dublin Bus said construction work on the Luas cross-city project presented a significant logistical hurdle for some of their bus routes. An increase in real-time passenger information signs and the completion of the roll-out of next-stop audio announcements is planned by Dublin Bus
Dart passengers are also increasing. The service along the east coast saw an increase in passengers, up from 15.62 million in 2013 to 15.95 million last year.
