Default NTA Fare Determinations for 2017

https://www.nationaltransport.ie/new...users-in-2017/

Key Points
1 - No increase for 75% (3 in 4 passengers)
2 - 50% cut for Sallins/Nass & Kilcock passengers (Leap Extended)

IE Specific:
1 - No change to Intercity single and return fares
2 - Intercity adult and child weekly up 2%
3 - Sallins/Naas and Kilcock stations to relocate from intercity zone into the Dublin Short Hop Zone resulting in savings for commuters of almost 50%
4 = Adjust ODs (Origin –Destinations) zones for 261 ODs out of 1,200 ODs in 5 - Dublin Short Hop Zone (SHZ) to reflect a more consistent distance based pricing structure. This will result in the fares for 226 SHZ journeys being reduced by 16-18%, and 36 being increased by 16-18%.
6 - No increase in basic SHZ fares except 3 individual all-zone fares
7 - SHZ and intercity Taxsaver fares to increase by 4%
8 - Cork commuter fares up 1.5% to 2 % except for top zone which is held at current fares
9 -Multi operator monthly and annual fares up 2%

So yet again, the people hit worst are Irish Rail's best customers. I get to enjoy worse service for yet another 4% increase. Wonderful. To make matters worse, they got granted twice what they asked!

Yes, typical - I'm delighted to say that I'll be purchasing my last Short Hop Annual Rail Ticket for 2017 soon - I wont be commuting to Heuston from end of May 2017 - 'money for old rope' not a day too soon for such an inept service.

No mention by NTA or Taxsaver of the GCD service for point to point tickets.

Taxsaver still refer to Heuston with usual Luas/DB extra but nothing about the new GCD service.

We will make inquiries for what happens to someone with a Sallins Dublin annual as clearly they are due a part refund from Dec 1st

The fares for the Phoenix Park service are hidden in the determination

Default Is Sallins / Naas really ready for Leap / SHZ?!

Hi there,

The NTA said that Sallins & Naas is Leap ready so the fares will change in December? From what I am aware, the only place to tag on / off is the station house, which is generally open on weekday mornings.

Will they be installing the purple tag on / off poles for when the station house is shut - i.e. What about the evenings, weekends etc...? And how likely are they to have them installed before December?

Cheers,
Brian
