Ticket move 'one giant Leap' for Wexford Bus
Published 07/05/2013 | 05:42
Wexford Bus took a giant leap forward last week when it became the first private commercial bus operator in the country to officially adopt the Leap Card ticketing system.
While the National Transport Authority (NTA) is currently trialling the system on other commercial bus operator services, but Wexford Bus is the first to officially adopt the Leap Card ticketing system on their Wexford to Dublin City & Airport route.
Using the Leap Card means that passengers can pre-load it with credit, and then use it to pay for journeys on public transport services such as Dublin Bus, Luas, and DART and commuter rail as well as Wexford Bus, making it easier than ever to reach their final destination if transfers across the different operators are needed.
Brendan Crowley, Managing Director, Wexford Bus said he was delighted to roll out the Leap Card system adding it will be of huge benefit to users of the bus service.
'We are very pleased to introduce the Leap Card ticketing system to our customers. We are continually looking at ways to improve the service for our passengers and the convenience that the Leap Card technology brings will be of huge benefit. We expect that many of our regular commuters will switch to a Leap Card and we look forward to further developing the offering over the coming months.'
Passengers can use the Travel Credit on their Leap Card to pay for discounted single trips, or they can choose to load weekly tickets to their card.
