Tens of thousands of Bus Éireann customers are set to benefit from lower fares with the National Transport Authority’s (NTA) expansion of fare zones in regional cities and other fare changes.

These initiatives to incentivise increased usage of public transport means that passengers on around five million Bus Éireann journeys will be paying lower fares in 2018, compared to 2017. This includes three million customer journeys in regional cities, and about two million on longer commuter/rural journeys.

While there are small increases in city cash fares, significant savings are available to customers who use Leap. Following an NTA analysis of the current red zones in the regional cities of Cork, Limerick, Galway - based on the population density and job density - an extended city fare zone to many major suburbs, comes into place today.

Main highlights of the Bus Éireann fare changes include:

Small increase in City Single cash fares but Leap discount increased from 27% to 30%, resulting in significant saving for customers who migrate to Leap and no increase for existing Leap Adult City customers

Leap discount on commuter travel (single tickets) in the Greater Dublin Area increase from 20% to 30%

Amalgamation of Cork Red & Green zones into one Red zone. Significant reduction in most fares where current Stage Carriage/Green zone product fares move to Red Zone city fares

Extended City Fare Zones in Galway (to include Barna & Oranmore) and Limerick (to include Ardnacrusha, Castleconnell & Clonlara)

Significant reform of commuter/rural journey fare structure. Decreases for most single fares. Major savings for customers in many of these areas.

Leap ticketing for the 30% discount on cash fares will be rolled out nationwide in 2018
