What destination signs do Galway city buses show?
City to suburbs:
When a Galway city bus is travelling from Eyre Square out to the suburbs, it has signs that show the route number, and the route-name.
The signs may be at the top-centre of the windscreen in a special display box, or they may be printed cards which are manually placed in the front window.
The route-name may be in English and Irish, or alternate between English and Irish every few seconds.
When a Galway city bus is travelling from the suburbs back towards Eyre Square, it may show any of these as the route number:
- the route number it is travelling along
- the route number for the "through route" service that it will operate next,
- Eyre Square / An Faiche Mhór An Faiche Mhor
- Town Centre / Lár Baile Lar Baile
- City Centre / An Lár An Lar
- the route name of the suburb is it coming back from
- route name for the "through route" service that it will operate next.
There are a range of other destination signs that may also be used including the following (English and Irish translations shown):
- Out of service / As Seirbhís Serbhis
(ie not currently operating for passengers)
- Park and Ride / Fág an Carr - Tóg an Bus (fag an carr - tog an bus)
(for buses operating a dedicated park-and-ride service, with limited stops between the pick-up point and the destination)
- School Bus / Bus Schoile
