Children will see a potential reduction in the maximum weekly charge from €14 to €7.

Additionally, Bus Éireann passengers can use their Leap cards to avail of further reductions in fares on city and town services including in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Drogheda, Dundalk, Sligo, Balbriggan, Navan and Athlone.
