The CitySwift story

At CitySwift, buses are in our blood

Our team has more than 40 years’ experience across the bus industry and a unique understanding of its operational challenges. With deep public transportation domain knowledge, we’re ideally positioned to transform the way buses are scheduled.

In 2018, we were selected to join the Intelligent Mobility UK Accelerator Programme and Bank of Ireland’s Innovation Lab in New York City. The following year, we appeared in the Sunday Business Post’s prestigious ‘100 Hot Startups’ list and were described by siliconrepublic as one of the companies shaking up Ireland’s data science scene. We have also received accolades at the National Startup Awards over two consecutive years.

CitySwift is institutionally backed. Our investors include Ryanair co-founder Declan Ryan’s Irelandia Investments, ACT Venture Capital and former CarTrawler Chief Executive Mike McGearty.
