Young Adult & Student Card

Commercial Bus Services – Young Adult and Student Card

On 09 May 2022, the Minister of Transport Eamon Ryan and the National Transport Authority launched the 50% public transport fare reduction for young adults aged 19-25 years old inclusive and mature students.

Commercial Bus Operators who hold a public bus passenger service licence may opt into the Fares Scheme that has been established to enable them to offer the discount. Participation in the Fares Scheme is voluntary.

You do not have to be a participant in the Authority’s Integrated Ticketing System (Leap Card) to be able to offer the discount.

If you are interested in joining the Fares Scheme, please email: for further information.

The list of current commercial bus routes that offer the Young Adult and Student Card discount is available for download here.
