Opening-a-Transportation-Company-in-IrelandTransport legislation in Ireland

The transportation industry is one of the most important branches in the Irish economy because it provides consumers the means to access other products. In 2009 the National Transport Authority in Ireland enabled the Public Transport Regulations Act. The new legislation requires all Irish companies to obtain a license if they are providing transportation services. The same legislation applies to both public and private companies in Ireland. Licensing requirements differ for companies providing services under a Public Service Contract.

Transport license applications in Ireland

All Irish companies providing transportation services are required to apply for a license before starting operating. The only exceptions from these regulations are:

  • - companies providing services for the carriage of children to and from school,
  • - companies providing international service and are authorized under the EU legislation,
  • Irish private companies in Ireland hired by a group for a certain fee.

In all other cases the transport license application should contain the following information:

  • - details about the nature of the service provided,
  • - an estimation of the capacity of vehicles,
  • - the fare to be imposed,
  • - an electronic timetable for the services provided,
  • - an Ordnance Survey Ireland map establishing each station.

For more information about the licensing requirements for transportation companies you may ask our experts in Ireland.

What are the requirements to register a transportation company in Ireland?

The first step to start a transportation company is to register the company with the Irish Trade Register and select the right NACE codes form the Nomenclature of Economic Activities. For those providing transportation services the NACE codes are found under Section I Transport, storage and communication:

  • - 60 for land transport,
  • - 60.1 for transport via railways,
  • - 60.2 for other land transport,
  • - 60.21 for scheduled passenger land transport,
  • - 60.22 for taxi operation,

  • - 63.11 for cargo handling,
  • - 63. 21 for other support land transport activities,
