That's a striking level of incompetence there.
Same if your employer changes the 3rd party agent they use for annual passes.

So presumably its tied to whoever does the actual order. Sounds like a very, very simple thing to fix.

I now need to remember to change over physical card next weekend, sounds quite simple but not the easiest thing to remember when tired at 8am!

You gotta remember the back office system for leap, is an off the shelf solution. It may sound like it needs minor change, but they can have big charges against them making those things cost prohibitive.

I bought a Dublin City Bus 5 Day Rambler there through the website. Under collection, it says 'Leap Top-Up App' which is what I selected.

The email says

Important Notes:
• Top Up Travel Credit and/or Travel Tickets purchased before 10pm is normally available for collection by 8am the following day.

Will it kick in over night, then?

Should do. You'll need to scan your card on the app to collect it though.

I thought you could buy them through the App now? So you don't need to order it via the website.

Thanks, yeah the ticket was there when I checked via NFC yesterday morning. Was on 4 buses yesterday, all grand.

Yeah, there's a payment option. For the likes of cinema tickets, etc, I've tended to stick to PC in the past. Will try the app next time.

Does anybody know if the Luas ticket machines dispense change of €50 ? I need to top up my leap card, but am not doing so by the full €50 amount and have no other change on me at present. Thanks

If you're topping up by €30 it should be fine, any less and it can't accept the €50

Looks like I've lost my leap card! Was loaded with a monthly ticket. Anyone know if I request a replacement will my monthly ticket be on the new card, or will I have to load it again?

Officially, Leap is now the only(*) way to purchase daily, weekly or monthly tickets in Galway, Cork, Limerick or Waterford.

Announced here: https://www.buseireann.ie/news_timet...3349&month=Mar

Although I did see someone purchase a Day-saver ticket for cash on a Galway city bus on Tuesday.




(*) apart from TaxSaver, which isn't available to everyone.

They should've gone one step further and eliminated cash fares altogether, or only sell them in shops etc.

Would speed up boarding times in Cork massively.

Should be the other way around. Fare capping in Dublin should be making ramblers products irrelevant.
