Public transport fares to go up from December 1st

National Transport Authority sets “significant” increases to protect service delivery

Leap Card fares increase – but are still much cheaper than cash

The National Transport Authority has today (16 November 2012) set the increases that are to be applied to cash, Leap and pre-paid ticket fares across all contracted public transport services provided by Dublin Bus, Iarnród Éireann, Bus Éireann and the Railway Procurement Agency (Luas).

Some of these fares increases are significant, and customers are therefore urged to use the Leap Card, as the new Leap fares will be as cheap as or cheaper than the current cash fares – and substantially cheaper than the new cash fares.
