2nd February 2023


What is Leap +1?

Leap +1 is a promotion that allows a paying TFI Leap Card customer to bring one person with them on their trip free of charge on participating services during the first weekend in February 2023.

When is the Leap +1 promotion applicable?

The Leap +1 promotion will be applicable on Ireland’s newest public holiday weekend – Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th of February 2023.

The promotion commences at 00:01 on Saturday 4th and ends at 23:59 on Monday 6th February 2023.

Which public transport services does it apply on?

Leap +1 applies on publicly funded public transport services where a TFI Leap Card can be used to pay. This includes services operated by:

Dublin Bus;

Go Ahead Ireland;

TFI Local Link

Bus Éireann Services (Excluding Expressway);

Luas; and

Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail network

  • – DART and Commuter Services on the Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail SHZ
  • – Cork Commuter Network
  • – Intercity where a customer has a valid Monthly/Annual ticket on a Leap Card – Excluding travel Cross Border

As well as these other publicly funded routes:

Kilkenny City, Routes KK1 / KK2 operated by City Direct;

Naas – Blanchardstown Route 139 operated by JJ Kavanagh;

Limerick City – Castletroy Route 310 operated by Dublin Coach;

What does a TFI Leap Card customer have to do to avail of the promotion?

Simply present your TFI  Leap Card to pay for your journey or validate a pre-loaded ticket journey as normal and bring someone along with you for free.

When boarding a bus, tell the driver the person with you is your +1 and they’ll let them get on-board for free.

When travelling on commuter train, DART or Luas use a Leap Card at the validator to touch on and off as normal and simply travel together with your +1 for the duration of your journey.

Train stations will be either staffed or gates will be left open for the period of the promotion to ensure +1s can get through to the platform.

Will ticket inspectors be working during the promotion?

Ticket inspection will continue as normal with the only difference being that a +1 customer can tell the inspector that they are travelling with the TFI Leap Card customer and indicate the card holder with whom they are travelling. This will suffice to allow them to continue to travel.

Do the two customers need to travel together?

Yes, +1s will need to travel together with the Leap Card customer that they boarded with for the full duration of the journey to ensure they can tell the ticket inspector that they’re together with a paying Leap Card customer.

Does the offer apply to all Leap Card users?

Yes, any Leap Card can be used provided the customer is eligible to use it. For example, a child Leap Card user can bring an adult as their +1. Or a Leap Card user who has a valid ticket on their card other than travel credit can also use their Leap Card to bring a +1 with them.

Why are you doing Leap +1?

Leap +1 aims to bring new people onto public transport to sample it as well as rewarding existing public transport users by giving a promotional saving. By bringing new users onboard to sample public transport we’re trying to convert of them to make the more sustainable transport choice for more of their journeys in the future.

How is the revenue foregone being calculated?

We’re working with operators to develop a methodology.

How is the revenue loss being funded?

This is a TFI Leap Card promotion and it aims to give money back to TFI Leap Card users. We currently have a growing pool of TFI Leap Card “dormant funds” which is travel credit on TFI Leap Cards that are no longer used. Owners of these cards can apply for a refund any time and we have done campaigns in the past to encourage them to do so. Nonetheless, this pool of funds continues to grow so we want to use this promotion as an opportunity to give some of it back to users while retaining an adequate amount in reserve to cover potential requests for refund.

Route 387 Wexford to Rosslare to update

From January 9th 2023 ALL our services will accommodate Rosslare strand.

So that means the 12:30 service from the Harbour will now turn at Tagoat and go to the strand as per all other services instead of bypassing strand and continuing on main road.

This change has come about due to Wexford Bus discontinuing their own Rosslare service Route 878. We understand passengers have concerns about this due to our 387 Rosslare service being very busy. We have particularly taken on your feedback regarding the early services. However please be assured that we are monitoring the situation.

If you have any concerns or would like to get in touch with us please call our office on 053 901 1828 or email us from the contact page on our website or directly to wexford@locallink.ie

TFI Launches Badge and Card for Passengers with Invisible Disabilities

Please Offer Me a Seat Badge and Card: No Need to Explain

Transport for Ireland (TFI), along with Invisible Disability Ireland, is today launching the “Please Offer Me a Seat” Badge and Card for people with invisible disabilities to use when using public transport.

If a passenger with an invisible disability has difficulty standing while using public transport, the badge or card will help them to subtly alert fellow passengers that they would welcome being offered a seat. Some examples of invisible disabilities are fibromyalgia, autism, head injuries, chronic pain, poor balance and multiple sclerosis, along with other conditions.

The badge and card can be used on Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, Iarnród Éireann—Irish Rail, Luas, Go-Ahead Ireland, and TFI Local Link services.

Dominic Hannigan, Public Transport Regulation at the NTA said, “It is important that public transport is as inclusive and accessible for people of varying abilities as possible. Public transport is for everyone and any measure that assists our passengers in feeling as comfortable as possible while using our services is welcome. I encourage passengers with hidden disabilities to contact their local public transport operator to obtain a card or badge and I hope other passengers will be understanding of those who indicate that they would appreciate being offered a seat”.

Emily Larkin, Founder and Director of Invisible Disability Ireland said, “One in 7 people in Ireland have a disability and about 80%of disabilities have invisible impairments, meaning they are not immediately apparent. Invisible disabilities are no less challenging and can hinder a person’s efforts to go to school, work, socialise, and more.  Although people with invisible disabilities make up a large percentage of the disability population, they have little representation, awareness, understanding or support. Not only will the “Please Offer Me a Seat” Badge and Card ensure that people with hidden disabilities are eligible for a seat in priority areas on public transport, I also hope that this will help raise awareness and promote a greater understanding of invisible disabilities amongst the general public”.

Sorin Costica, Head of Operations for Dublin Bus said, “Dublin Bus is committed to providing an accessible service for each and every one of our customers. The introduction of this badge and card will make our services even more inclusive for all customers. It will give people hidden disabilities the freedom to travel with confidence when using Dublin Bus and other public transport services”.

TFI is launching an advertising campaign about the “Please Offer Me a Seat” Badge and Card today. You can view the video here.  Passengers who require a badge or card can contact their local TFI public transport operator to get one. Passengers should note that a badge and card does not guarantee a seat.
