Differences between feeder bus and normal bus

    There is a feeder Dublin bus that runs from Blackrock Dart station called the 114.
    Is there a reduced fare on this bus if you get the Dart?

    I am wondering about single trips as opposed to monthly/annual tickets.

    Also, do you have to say anything to the bus driver about your previous dart trip to get the discount if there is any?

    Feeder buses haven't existed for a long time

    When leap arrived the legacy integrated fares were withdrawn

    If you're using a Leap card, you will get a discount of €1 off the second part of the trip

    The feeder bus concept was anaemic to start and died out without anyone really noticing or caring.

    The main reason it failed, and something the BusConnects muppets obviously haven't learned from is that they were too infrequent, both segments need to be high frequency, 10 min or better, not the high frequency trunk route connection to 20, 30 or worse frequency local bus that is planned.
