Leap Card Luas Cap

Luas Card Caps your travel credit spend, so once you hit an applicable Cap you can travel for free on the service for the rest of the day or week.

Capping means that you won’t get charged more than the price of a 1 Day or 7 Day Luas Flexi Ticket using Leap Card.

Capping is part of the Leap Card functionality. It introduces a Cap; a maximum amount you pay for Luas travel during 1 day or 7 days (Mon-Sun) with Leap Card. This is equal to the 1 Day or 7 Day Luas Flexi Ticket. After you reach the Cap the rest of your travel during that 1 day or 7 days is free. Leap Card Luas Capping is the first introduction of this Leap Card functionality and will be on Luas only for now.

The Leap Card Capping functionality for Luas was turned on before the start of Luas services at 5.30am on Monday 17th December 2012. You don’t need to do anything; just your use your Leap Card as normal. The Caps will be applied automatically. Don’t forget to Touch On and Touch Off with your Leap Card for all journeys as normal so you are charged the right amount and so that you have a valid ticket to travel on Luas.
