The National Transport Authority’s Leap Card is available in Galway on Bus Éireann city services. Customers can choose an adult, student, or child Leap Card for better value and more convenient travelling, and no need for cash on board.
The NTA’s fare determination has resulted in savings of up to 30 per cent on single trips, resulting in a fare reduction from €2.30 to €1.61 for adults and from €1.30 to €0.91 for children. Leap Cards are available to buy and top-up in a range of Payzone agent shops in Galway (see www.payzone.ie for full details ) while cards can also be topped up online, via the Leap top-up app on Android phones, and with credit purchased from convenience stores.
Leap Cards will be rolled out on other routes in the PSO Network in Galway during 2018.
Student and Taxsaver Leap Cards are also available, offering further savings for those going to college or commuting daily.
