Leap in to get your Herald ... and win €5k of free city travel
THE Herald has €5,000 worth of free travel to give away on Leap Cards as journeys jump over the one million mark.
Dublin's new ticketing system has been snapped up by more than 60,000 individuals.
The new integrated ticketing system, which was introduced in December last year, has been embraced by Dubliners and city commuters as the new way to pay for travel around the capital.
Now the Herald, Dublin's number one newspaper, is giving away €5,000 worth of free travel. You could be in with the chance to win one of 50 cards which are loaded up with €100 travel credit each.
From Monday, there will be tokens printed every day in the paper.
Simply collect two tokens and fill in the entry form for your chance to win a Leap Card topped up with the significant amount. Entry forms for the competition will be in the paper on Thursday and Friday.
Leap Card fares are up to 11pc cheaper than single tickets on Dublin Bus, up to 17pc cheaper on Luas and up to 18pc cheaper on Dart and Commuter Rail single tickets.
The card can be used on all Dublin Bus, Luas and DART services as well as Dublin's Short Hop Zone.
And Bus Eireann plans to launch a Leap Card customer pilot shortly in to the Dublin area.
Leap Card electronic readers are also due to be added to private bus services on a pilot basis -- on Wexford Bus and Matthews Coaches Bettystown. In addition, more private bus operators are joining.
