Customers Safety and Security

At GoBus.ie safety is paramount; all coaches are fitted with seat belts and prior to the commencement of a journey our drivers remind customers to “belt up”. All drivers have been trained in safe driving techniques to optimise customer safety. CCTV is also installed on all coaches to provide additional security for customers and staff alike.

Keeping customers informed

We believe it is important to keep our customers informed to help provide the best possible experience. We will ensure that our website is kept up to date and that timetable information is available from our website, on-board our coaches and at our Customer Care Centre.

In periods of disruption we use our Twitter and Facebook accounts to keep customers informed of the status of our services. When any planned changes are made to a timetable, we ensure that it is communicated to our customers at least 10 days in advance of the change. All details regarding fares are published on our website.

Lost Property Management

Leaving something behind can be distressing and inconvenient and we appreciate the disruptive impact this can have. We always try and to re-reunite passengers with lost property as soon as possible and provide the following.
  • All items found are logged in the Lost Property Log
  • All items of lost property are held securely by GoBus.ie between their depots in Ballina, Cork and Galway
  • Enquiries relating to any item of lost property can be made via our Customer Care Centre
  • Lost property is held for one month and thereafter provided to a charity, if appropriate or disposed of
