From November 28th, TFI Leap Card fares changed on Transport for Ireland services in the Dublin Area.
A new TFI 90 Minute fare applies to most journeys. This TFI 90 Minute fare 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 – just touch on your last journey within 90 minutes of the first.

If your card is lost or stolen and has not been registered, you cannot apply for a replacement/refund. We recommend you register your card as soon as you receive it to protect your balance if your card is lost or stolen.
