History

Bus Éireann was established in 1987.

Busáras - Central Bus Station, a much hated and a much loved structure, is located in Dublin. Cork bus station perhaps once took the award for Bus Éireann's most badly planned, dirtiest and ugliest terminus, but as of 2004 the building is in the process of being remodelled as part of the city's preparation for being European Capital of Culture, 2005. It now sports a more modern face, with properly organized bus bays and a sensible layout of services.
