DART journeys from Greystones now included in 90-minute NTA fare

DART trips to and from Greystones will now be included in the new 90-minute journey scheme, the National Transport Authority has confirmed.

The new fare scheme charges Leap Card holders a flat rate of €2.30 once they touch on, and they can undertake additional journeys for free once within the 90-minute window.

However, the fare, which was launched towards the end of last year, was only valid to Bray.

In a statement, the NTA said following an investigation it was decided that a zone 5 fare should extend for journeys from Greystones, to include city centre stations Pearse, Tara and Connolly.

“This is decision was made in order to be consistent with journeys between Skerries and the city centre,” said a spokesperson.

They continued: “The anomaly highlighted is as a result of zoning decisions based on historical fares methodology. This also applies to the journey between Maynooth and the city centre, for which a 90 minute fare now applies on Leap (€2.30).

“The NTA is working with Irish Rail to migrate all remaining cash fares to the updated fares methodology, as introduced on Leap in November 2021 and outlined in the most recent fares determination.”

Green Party TD for Wicklow Steven Matthews had previously raised the fare anomaly with the NTA and welcomed the announcement.
