Everyone is now advised to wear a face covering in some situations, for example in shops or on busy public transport. Wearing of cloth face coverings may help prevent people who do not know they have the virus from spreading it to others. Guidance on safe use of face coverings can be accessed here.
Public transport is currently restricted to essential travel only which is for the purpose of buying food or medicines, going to medical appointments, and for carers and essential workers. It is advised to use your TFI Leap Card to pay for your trip where possible.
For holders of TaxSaver tickets who continue employment with their current employer, the customer will be offered free travel for a number of months equivalent to the length of time they have been unable to use their ticket as a result of travel restrictions. More details on this can be found on the Transport For Ireland website.
Anyone who enters Ireland via airport or ferry will have to complete an Irish public health passenger locator form.
In addition, revised public transport timetables are in operation for some services since March 30th.

As always, please continue to be considerate to one another when using public transport, take sensible precautions like regular hand-washing and remember to cough/sneeze into your elbow. TFI and public transport operators continue to follow all public health guidelines issued by the Chief Medical Officer and the HSE.
It is important to ensure you are well-informed. For reliable facts, visit the HSE website.
