To travel for free, you must always show your Free Travel Pass.
If travelling with Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann or on private bus services:
- you must show your Free Travel Pass to the bus driver when boarding the bus. You do not need a bus ticket to use these services.
Before using Iarnród Éireann mainline, DART or Outer Suburban services:
- you must show your Free Travel Pass at the ticket booking desk in the train station and get a free rail ticket. If you are making your return journey on the same day, you will get a Day Return ticket. In all other cases, you will get a single journey ticket. You will have to get another single ticket before making your return journey.
When using private ferry services:
- you must produce your Free Travel Pass to the ferry operator. In some cases, you will get a ticket for your journey.
You cannot get a refund for any journeys you make without your Free Travel Pass or for any delays encountered while using your Free Travel Pass.
