Dublin Bus, Luas and DART fares are, once again, going to increase

Some fares are going up while others are going down.

It was announced today that Dublin Bus, Luas and DART fares are on the rise.

The National Transport Authority made the announcement this afternoon that the standard €2.85 fare will increase to €3. This is for journeys between four and 13 stages.

However, there will be no change to the €3.30 cash fare for journeys over 13 stages.

The €2.15 Leap fare will increase to €2.25, while the €2.60 Leap fare for journeys of over 13 stages will drop to €2.50.

There will also no longer be a distinction between peak and off-peak Luas Leap fares.

Anne Graham, Chief Executive of The National Transport Authority, said that “a revised fare structure is required for public transport in the city which will support seamless movement between different public transport services and modes without a financial penalty”.

She added that “ultimately, there will be a two-fare system comprising a short distance fare and a 90 minute fare” when the new Bus Connects scheme is introduced.
