What is a Student Leap Card?

Student Leap Cards are available to third-level students aged 16-18 or 26+ who are in full time education. Those aged between 19-25 can get a young adult leap card. 

To get a Student Leap Card, students must have a minimum of 16 hours of lectures/class time per week and be enrolled for a minimum of 6 months duration in any one 12-month period. 

If you’re a regular Student Leap Card user, you’ll be glad to hear that a cap has been put on the amount you can spend while using your TFI Leap Card on one day or week. Once you hit the cap, you travel free for the rest of the day or week.

Capping applies to Dublin Bus, Luas, DART/Commuter Rail services and Go-Ahead Ireland services in Dublin.
