Dublin Bus Is Planning A Major Change To Its Fare System

Dublin Bus has revealed plans to go cashless in an effort to reduce travel times across the city.

According to The Herald,  the National Transport Authority wants to follow the example of London where improvements in travel times have been seen after banning the use of change on buses.

The organisation is considering making those who insist on using cash to buy their bus tickets in shops rather than on a bus. 70% of people already use Leap cards, so it's thought the move would not be a major inconvenience for users of the service.

The changes would not come into effect for three to five years.
