Using TFI Leap Card on Luas


On Sunday November 28th, TFI Leap Card fares changed across Transport for Ireland services in the Dublin Area.

These new fares replace the previous zone based system for Luas fares (map at bottom of page for reference).

A new TFI 90 Minute fare (TFI 90) now applies to most journeys. This fare combines what was formerly the Luas 2 – 8 zone fare structure and includes the option to transfer between Dublin Bus, Luas and most DART, commuter rail (zones 1 to 4 in the Short Hop Zone) and Go-Ahead Ireland services in Dublin. To avail customers simply need to touch on their last journey within 90 minutes of the first.

The TFI 90 fare is just €2.30 for adults and students when using their TFI Leap Card during a promotional period and only 80 cent for children up to and including 18 years.

There is also a short fare for single trips up to 3km.

On Luas the introduction of the new short adult fare of €1.60 replaces the previous 1 zone fare structure.
