TFI Leap Card Kilkenny

From 18th December 2019, City Direct started operating two new routes in Kilkenny City on behalf of Transport for Ireland. TFI Leap Card is accepted on these services, giving a 30% discount on travel compared to standard cash fares.

And to celebrate the launch, a promotional €1 fare will apply once you use your adult or student TFI Leap Card on these routes, until 17th March 2020..

Route KK1 runs from Loughboy Retail Park to the N77 Roundabout and serves Upper Patrick Street, McDonagh Junction, and Castlecomer Road.

Route KK2 runs from Purcellsinch to St Luke’s Hospital with stops at Dublin Road, Newpark Shopping Centre, McDonagh Station, Nowlan Park, and Loreto.

The routes will share a path through the city centre, serving Parliament Street, Market Yard, and John Street Upper.

Each route operates every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday. Services on Sunday operate by the hour, with services every half hour during the core part of the day.

Late night services will operate on Friday and Saturday nights.


You can find a full list of agents in your area here.

And if you’re not near a TFI Leap agent, you can download the Leap Top-up App onto a NFC-enabled Android phone and top up directly from your phone.
