Kildare commuters to be hit with fare rises for train, bus and Luas
30 Oct 2015
Co Kildare commuters will see train, bus and Luas fares go up from the start of December. Tickets on Irish Rail, Bus Eireann, the Luas and Dublin Bus will rise, the National Transport Authority said. The NTA said it plans some 'moderate' fares increases for rail services on Iarnrod Eireann. Short Hop Zone fares will increase between 1.4% to 4.2%. The price of three-day and seven-day tickets will go up 4%. This move is intended to encourage rail users to use Leap cards. On the Luas, the one-day, seven-day and 30-day tickets will go up 4%. Bus Eireann fares will be restructured to give better discounts to children and students with changes varying from minus 5% to plus 5%. There will be a 15 cent increase for some cash-paying adult users of Dublin Bus. Schoolchildren in Dublin will also be hit with an additional 5 cent charge for cash fares. The fare changes are to be implemented from 1 December.
