What is the TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card?

The TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card is a special type of Leap Card that is designed for students and young adults aged 16 to 24. It allows you to pay for your public transport journeys using a prepaid balance or a travel credit that you can top up online or at any Leap Card agent. You can use it on buses operated by TFI Local Link, and trains, trams, and ferries operated by other TFI service providers.


What are the benefits of the TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card?

The main benefit of the TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card is that it offers you discounted fares on public transport services. Depending on the service and the distance, you can get up to 50% off the regular adult fare. For example, a single bus journey in Galway city costs €2.40 with cash, but only €1.68 with the TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card. That’s a saving of €0.72 per trip!


Another benefit of the TFI Student and Young Adult Leap Card is that it is convenient and secure. You don’t have to worry about carrying cash or exact change, or buying tickets every time you travel. You just need to touch your card on the validator when you board and exit the vehicle, and the correct fare will be deducted from your balance.
