TFI Leap Card can be used on Cork City bus services (operated by Bus Éireann) as well as Cork commuter rail services on the Cork-Cobh and Cork-Midleton lines. TFI Leap fares are 30% cheaper than cash single fares on city bus services, so commuters can pay as little as €1.68. And if you travel by train you get a great deal with Leap Card fares as low as €1.73.
From 1st December 2018, things are getting even better for Cork Commuters, with an expanded city fare zone. Now new areas like Kinsale, Mallow, Fermoy, Bandon and Macroom as well as the numerous smaller towns between them
and the City Centre will be in the new Cork Green zone. Commuters in these areas can get Leap 24 hr, Leap 7-day, monthly and annual tickets that allow travel into Cork City and around the city fare zone.
TFI Leap Cards can be topped up using ticket machines available at selected stations and at Payzone Leap agents around the city.
And if you’re not near a TFI Leap agent, you can download the Leap Top-up App onto a NFC-enabled Android phone and top up directly from your phone.
