Some public transport passengers will have to pay more for their fares.
The NTA (National Transport Authorithy) has stated that a number of routes on Dublin Bus, Luas, and train services will experience an increase in fares. Luas fares are to increase by 5% with a new off-peak fare from city centre being 1 euro. Mid-range Dublin Bus journeys are to increase by 5.6%. Anne Graham (NTA CEO) stated that the increase in fares would bring more savings to passengers. Children up to the age of 5 will be able to travel for free on all transport.
