For individuals who rely on mobility scooters, navigating public transportation can sometimes be a challenge. In Dublin, Ireland, Dublin Bus has taken steps to accommodate passengers with mobility scooters. However, it’s important to be aware of the specific regulations and requirements in place, such as the need for a permit. In this article, we’ll dive into the details of traveling on Dublin Bus with a mobility scooter and the essential information you should know about obtaining a permit.

The Permit Requirement

Dublin Bus requires passengers using mobility scooters to obtain a permit before traveling on their buses. This permit is an important step in ensuring the safety of all passengers and facilitating a smoother experience for individuals with limited mobility.

Why the Permit?

The permit system serves several purposes, primarily focusing on safety and accessibility. By requiring a permit, Dublin Bus can ensure that mobility scooters brought onto buses meet specific criteria that contribute to the overall safety of the passengers, the driver, and the equipment itself. Moreover, the permit allows the bus company to manage the accommodation of mobility scooters on their vehicles, ensuring that the space is available and properly prepared.

Applying for the Permit

To travel on Dublin Bus with your mobility scooter you must have a permit. This is because some mobility scooters are too big to fit on Dublin Bus buses. To find out if your scooter is the correct size, contact Dublin Bus travel assistant, who will check your scooter to see if it is suitable for the bus.
