Commuters will be faced with a change in fares come 2017, with it going up for some and down for others.

 

This afternoon, The National Transport Authority announced that fares for Luas, Irish Rail, Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann will be restructured, and commuters will now pay for the distance they travel.

For some it's a win, and for others it's a loss, but the NTA has said that fares will remain the same for the majority of passengers.

 

For example, an adult single Dart trip from Raheny to Bray currently costs €3.56 if you pay by Leap card, and €4.60 in cash. This will increases to a Leap card fare of €4.69 and a cash fare of €5.90.

 

However, an adult single Dart trip from Bayside to Clontarf Road currently costs €2.46 with a Leap card, and €3.25 with cash. In 2017, it will decrease to €1.73 on the Leap card and €2.20 in cash.

The NTA said: “This year’s fare determination has taken the opportunity to adjust fares to move closer to achieving the authority’s fares policy such as discount of approximately 30pc for students, and 50pc for children.

 

“It is also the view of the authority that annual fares should be approximately equivalent to ten times a monthly fare.”

 

Will this change be better or worse for you?
