We checked this with the NTA who estimate that it will be another 7 weeks before it is available. Open Data Team

Any update on the GTFS-RT service availability ? Updates to the TFI app suggest it may be available

Take money to fund this from a slick marketing budget that implies a satisfying UX but delivers nothing but jobs for the boys and girls. Why do the unions have so much power over every single change in the company,

This needs to be implemented as soon as possible, very frustrating relying on the indication signs at the stops as these are timetable only.

Real time positions of buses will allow commuters to form an understanding of where their bus gets delayed before getting to them. It'll both allow them to make better judgements about when their bus will arrive during abnormal traffic conditions and create more political pressure for removing delays during normal traffic conditions. Right now users may blame any number of factors for a late bus but if they can see it get stuck in the same spot every time then they will strongly be in favour of changes to address it.

Please see response from the NTA 'The current Real Time API through data.gov.ie and dublinked.com is failing due to its age. We are commissioning a new GTFS-RT service to replace that service. This will do as this request asks. We expect to launch in May 2019. It will be Open and free to use. We will publish access to the service through data.gov.ie'

This information needs to be available so third parties can provide proper real time information for users of the service.
