The TFI Live app combines the functionality of the Real Time Ireland and Journey planner apps which are no longer supported from 22nd February.
The app is available free on Apple App store and the Google Play store.
The TFI Live app offers live departure information for TFI services including those operates by Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Luas, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail, and more. For convenience you can search a service by route or by stop number.
Please be advised there are several factors that may affect the accuracy of live departure information; traffic, motor accidents, unanticipated road closures, operational disruptions or technical problems can sometimes affect bus services. Operators need to make last minute changes to the schedule because of this and it is not always possible for this to be reflected on the app.
The journey planning feature allows you to plan bus, train and tram trips on the Transport for Ireland network with the option of planning for now or for a future journey.
TFI Leap Top-Up App is a free app for NFC (near-field communication) enabled Android phones. It allows you to instantly top-up your TFI Leap Card, check your balance, collect tickets and check how close you are to reaching your daily and weekly cap values.
Once downloaded, simply hold your TFI Leap Card to the back of your NFC-enabled Android smartphone to instantly top-up your TFI Leap Card, collect or buy a pre-paid ticket, and check your balance.
If you make a lot of journeys in a day or a week, TFI Leap will automatically cap the price to help you save your money. Once you reach your cap you can continue to touch on and off as normal and no additional charges will be applied to your card. You can check how close you are to reaching your daily and weekly cap values on the TFI Leap Top-Up App, the only place you can get find this information.
The option to make an instant top up on your app is a quick and easy way to make sure you have enough Travel Credit to get through your week. Just save your payment card to your app, use the dial to select how much you wish to top-up by or enter the desired amount, and enter your four digit passcode.
TFI Leap Top-Up App is currently only available on Android. As of October 2019 Apple has unlocked the ability to write NFC tags with 3rd party apps, for iPhone 7 and newer devices, with the release of iOS 13. We are currently working on the IOS version of the TFI Leap Top-Up app and hope to have news for TFI Leap customers in the coming months.
More information on the TFI Leap Top-Up App is on the TFI Leap Card website.
TFI Driver Check App allows users to check that the vehicle they are about to hire has been registered correctly and that the driver has the appropriate license to operate the vehicle. If the information appears incorrect, it is possible to submit a report.
Users can check these details, including a photo of the driver, and can forward this information to a friend (minus the photo). This is to provide reassurance to the user that they are travelling safely and that there is a record of their trip.
All of Ireland’s taxis, hackneys, limousines and all SPSV (Small Public Service Vehicles) drivers are covered by this app. This includes rural locations as well as cities such as Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford.
Please be advised that the National Transport Authority (NTA) are responsible for licencing the vehicles being driven, and An Garda Síochána are responsible for issuing the individual’s driver licence.
To run a check online please visit publicregister.nationaltransport.ie.
TFI Go app allows you to buy tickets for public transport services in Ireland directly from your phone. Your ticket is downloaded to the app and can be used to travel straight away. No need for printing, just activate and show your driver while boarding.
