Fare evasion is a criminal offence that could lead to a fine of up to €1,000 and a court appearance. Random spot checks are carried out without warning on all public transport services to ensure that passengers have a valid ticket for their journey.
A standard fare (penalty fine) of €100 is charged to each passenger found not to have a valid ticket under the National Transport Authority Bye-Laws.
A standard fare (penalty fine) is issued when a passenger travels on TFI services with the incorrect ticket for that journey.
This can include, but not limited to:
- You have not paid the correct fare in consideration of your age or length of journey.
- Incorrect leap card ticket.
- Your leap card is not in date or valid.
- You are using someone else's leap card.
- You are unable to present the correct photographic identity required to validate your ticket.
- You are using a ticket which has be forged, altered, defaced, mutilated or destroyed.
