How do I top-up my TFI Leap Card?

  1. The most popular way to top-up your card is to download our Leap Top-Up app for free and use it to add credit, check your balance and collect tickets
  2. At TFI Leap Card Payzone outlet
  3. At Luas, DART and commuter rail ticket machines
  4. On-board selected bus operators
  5. Use Auto Top-Up for regular top-ups to be debited from your bank account
  6. Online at leapcard.ie, but please note if you top-up online, you still have to collect your travel credit or ticket at either a TFI Leap Card outlet or another nominated load location

What is a load location?

A load location is the point you nominate to collect your online top-up. You can choose:

  • Any TFI Leap Card Payzone outlet
  • Luas/DART/commuter rail validators and gates in the Short Hop Zone
  • On board selected bus operators including Wexford Bus, Matthews Coaches and Swords Express
  • Or Leap Top-Up app

If you are collecting your top-up at a Payzone Leap Card outlet, present your card to the reader at the counter and ask for a balance check. Your online top-up will load and your new balance will update automatically. Remember, it can take up to 48 hours for your travel credit to be ready for collection at your nominated load location.
