HAVE YOU TRIED to figure out how much to pay on a Dublin Bus route you’re not familiar with in the past?

It’s all zones, ages and Leap Cards. Not to mention the numerous price increases in recent months.

But the company has now come up with a solution to make calculating fares easier on commuters.

The online calculator will tell passengers how much cash to have ready – or let them know how much will be charged to their Leap Cards.

If a customer is not familiar with the location of their nearest bus stop or wants to view their full journey, a Google mapping facility is available when selecting the boarding and alighting stops. The calculator also provides information on children’s fares.

The facility is now live on the company’s website and is being developed for the Dublin Bus smartphone app.

A step-by-step guide is available here.

Late last year, users of public transport saw the price of one-off tickets increase by as much as 17.9 per cent. Short trips now cost €1.65 on Dublin Bus while longer journeys are generally about €2.80.

Commuters see price increases on buses, trains and trams
