This follows on from the news that Dublin Bus would be increasing their fares.

They told customers that:

“Dublin Bus wishes to advise customers that following a determination by the National Transport Authority (NTA) revised fares will apply to some cash and Leap fares from 1 December 2018.

“The move to a simplified fare structure combined with Leap Card being over 20% cheaper than cash will make public transport easier to use and further improve the customer experience.

“A reduction of nearly 15% in Nitelink Leap fares will benefit customers who work and socialise in the city centre and will be a significant boost to the city’s night time economy.”

The National Transport Authority (NTA) announced their intention to enter into a further direct award contract with Dublin Bus in 2019 for the provision of bus services in the Dublin metropolitan region from 2019 to 2024.

This new contracts will include all services currently operated by Dublin Bus, except those previously tendered in 2017.

Dublin Bus CEO, Ray Coyne, welcomed the announcement; “We will now carefully consider this proposal but we believe it reflects the success Dublin Bus has delivered and means we would continue to operate all Public Service Obligation routes in Dublin for the next five years, excluding those previously tendered in 2017”.
