New Dublin Bus fares, starting tomorrow

RTÉ reports:

“Cash fares for many Iarnród Éireann, Luas, Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann services will increase from tomorrow.”

“Minister for Transport Paschal Donohoe said that level of the increases was “significantly less” than previous increases.”

“As Irish Rail, Bus Éireann and Dublin Bus begin to get back on their feet again, because of more people using their services and because of additional investment from the Government, I am expecting that those sort of price increases that we saw in previous years are not repeated,” Mr Donohoe said.”

Luas at Stephen’s Green, Dublin

Derrick Howard was returning home yesterday when he got on the Luas in Stephen’s Green.

He writes:

“I was sitting there, waiting for the tram to pull off, when I started trying to remember, ‘did I tag on?’. I figured, ‘It’s only been about a minute, I’ll get off and try to tag on and if I’ve already done it, the pad will not register it’. Wrong!

“It tagged me off so I then had to wait two minutes to be allowed tag on again before getting back on the Luas. No big deal, I thought, I’ll email the Leap card people, who will surely reimburse my account – they told me the Luas people would need to issue the refund.”

“Well they sent me the email (below), saying it’s not their policy to refund in this case – despite the whole thing happening in five minutes and it being physically impossible to have taken a journey.”

“Granted it’s my own forgetful fault and, granted, it’s only a couple of euro… but come on!?!”
