The following bus routes in Dublin are now operated by Go-Ahead Ireland on behalf of Transport for Ireland:
TFI Leap Card can be used on all Go-Ahead Ireland scheduled services in Dublin. TFI Leap Card fares are at least 20% cheaper than cash single tickets. For details on fares, check out our fares section.
Like always, you can benefit from TFI Leap Card Capping and Leap 90 Discount when using Travel Credit to pay for your trips. These discounts are applied automatically, so all you need to do is Touch On when entering the bus as usual.
|For journeys 13 stages or less tell the driver your destination and hold your TFI Leap Card to the target on the driver’s ticket machine. The correct fare will be deducted for your journey.|
|For journeys over 13 stages use the Validator on the right hand side as you enter the bus. The appropriate flat fare will be deducted from your Travel Credit (fares valid from 01/12/18):
|You will hear a tone when you have successfully touched on. Do not touch off when using the bus.|
You can also load any of the following Bus Rambler tickets onto your TFI Leap Card at any TFI Leap Card outlet (prices valid from 01/12/18).
Rambler tickets are valid for consecutive or non-consecutive days of travel. They are valid on Go-Ahead Ireland services and Dublin Bus scheduled services including Airlink and Xpresso (excluding Nitelink, Tours, Special Events and Private Contract services).
A Rambler Ticket may suit you if you take more than 2 buses in a day and if you travel infrequently e.g. 3 days during one week and then 2 days during the next week. If you travel 5 days or more in a week, you may be better off using Travel Credit instead of Ramblers; as fare capping will cap your weekly spend on Dublin Bus and Go-Ahead Ireland at rates less than the 5 day Rambler. The choice is yours!
If you have purchased a Rambler ticket for your TFI Leap Card, you validate on the right hand side when you get on the bus.
