Map of Dublin showing the Temple Bar tourist area. A red arrow points to where you can change the profile.

With the Configure Map > Profile selection menu open, a red square surrounds the Bus icon to indicate the "public transport" profile is now selected.

The map now opens to show more information about public transport is now displayed on the map. This is highlighted with a red square.
Clicking the bustop (highlighted with a red circle ) will show more information about the routes available at this location.

Once the transport stop is selected, a list of all the routes that service this location are displayed. Along with other routes that are available within a short distance.

Clicking any of the routes numbers/names will give a zoomed out map showing in red the route many of the stops towards it's source and destination.

Useful and timely

Good show with useful information. We need to do everything to help people use public transportation. Something I saw on the Internet: "A developed country is not one where the poor drive cars. It is one where the rich use public transportation."
