Bus Éireann buses are expected to be back on the roads this week after nearly three weeks since the beginning of the strike action.
The dispute could come to an end in the coming days as all parties to the dispute are looking to come to a resolution.
The strike began eighteen days ago, and until today there has been no sign of a resolution.
Today and yesterday, however there have been whispers from that all sides want to come to an agreement as soon as possible.
It has affected people all over the country in the last three weeks, especially in rural Ireland where there is often no alternative transport.
The dispute is mainly over pay reductions proposed by management in the state-owned company, who says that changes are necessary to stay afloat.
Although taxis have benefited from the prolonged strike, most people want to see a resolution to the dispute and the buses to return as soon as possible.
