Life in Dublin can be expensive and with the cost of living on the rise, Dubliners will be happy to see savings in any aspect of daily life. One of the main daily costs shouldered by people, especially commuters, is the cost of travel.
So, we were over the moon to see an announcement from The Dublin Commuter Coalition (DCC) stating that, ‘the 90 min fare will be reduced to €2 across all modes from the 9 May‘. It’s currently €2.30 for an adult 90-minute ticket, so if you were to buy none every day that adds up to a saving of €2.10.
Plus, 19-23-year-olds and students will have to pay just €1 for a 90-minute fare. According to the DCC, this means that you could, ‘you could travel from Maynooth to Bray for €1′. We feel the Bray Head Cliff Walk calling!
For students, the decrease is permanent, at least for the foreseeable future, and the reduced price of adult tickets will last until the end of the year. However, the DCC have declared that they ‘won’t make it easy for them to increase it’. Thanks, DCC! You can read the full document regarding fare changes here.
