Public transport fares are to increase from the start of next month.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) says fares on monthly, annual and Tax-Saver tickets will increase from November 1st. While prices on cash tickets, Leap Card and pre-paid tickets will go up a month later, from December 1st.

The company says Dublin Bus users will see an average cash increase of 10%, with Leap Cards due to rise over 2%.

Irish Rail prices are to jump between 2% to 9% on average.

There are variations as to how much the increase will be, depending on which part of what service you are using.

This chart shows the breakdown of increases, as well as the difference in Leap fares

Luas Green Line Zone 2 cash fare will jump by 10 cent, while the Luas Red Zone 2 will rise by 20 cent.

DART passengers will see a cash fare rise of 25 cent per journey, while Dublin Bus will see an average increase of 25 cent.

Bus Eireann customers will have to pay 30 more cent on a cash fare - however in Cork city, the average price will go up by only 10 cent.

Gerry Murphy is CEO of the NTA and says fare increases are required to protect transport services.
