English firm Go-Ahead has been selected as preferred bidder for 10 percent of Dublin Bus routes.
The firm is one of the largest bus operators in London, and will start in Dublin at the end of next year.
Only Dublin Bus and Go-Ahead were involved in the final stages of the tendering process after four other firms dropped out.
