TFI Leap Card Capping amounts remain unchanged.

Rambler Tickets

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 11/04/22).

  • Rambler 5 Day Adult €26
  • Rambler 30 Day Adult €132
  • Rambler 5 Day Student €19
  • Rambler 30 Day Student €96
  • Rambler 1 Day Family €12

Rambler tickets are valid for consecutive or non-consecutive days of travel. They are valid on Go-Ahead Ireland Dublin City services and Dublin Bus scheduled services including 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 Dublin City services 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 need to validate your card on the right hand side when you get on the bus.
