BEACH SERVICE BACK FOR SUMMER 2023
TFI Local Link are delighted to announce that in collaboration with Wexford County Council we will have the beach services back again this summer.
This has been hugely popular with passengers over that last two summers and we are back again this year with an additional service.
This year we will have the ever popular Wexford town to Curracloe beach service, the Kilmuckridge Village to Morriscastle beach shuttle and a new service Gorey town to Ballymoney!
These beach services are the initiative of and funded by Wexford County Council, TFI Local Link Wexford and the National Transport Authority. The aim is to improve access for emergency services at popular Wexford beaches. Less traffic will also reduce the environmental impact to the flora and fauna caused by large volumes of cars in these environmentally sensitive coastal areas.
Timetables and locations for the new services are being finalised and as soon as we have them approved we will have them on our social platforms and advertised in the Wexford People; but we aim to be on target for the go live date and launch on Saturday June 3rd 2023
The three services will be operational every Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday from June 3rd to September 3rd with an additional daily service operational for two weeks from July 31st to August 11th 2023
Wexford to Curracloe and Gorey to Ballymoney will operate single fares but at a very reduced rate: Adult €2.00, Child / Student €1.00 and a family of 2 adults and 2 children €5.00
The Kilmuckridge Village to Morriscastle beach shuttle is a FREE service.
Hopefully we will get the weather this summer for all to enjoy our wonderful beaches.
Keep posted for the latest updates.

LEAP +1 PROMO FOR 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:
Go Ahead Ireland;
TFI Local Link
Bus Éireann Services (Excluding Expressway);
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 email@example.com
