Aircoach customers can travel even more efficiently after the company announced they are
now accepting Leap Cards on all routes. Aircoach’s current routes include Dublin, Cork,
Galway, Belfast and Derry/Londonderry.

Aircoach, the country’s leading private coach and bus operator, aims to make customers’
journeys easier to plan and to offer the best value for money, and this step to accept Leap
Cards is in line with the company’s continued innovation-led growth.

“We were the first Irish coach and bus operator to accept contactless payments on board our
vehicles in 2018, and we’re constantly looking to improve the customer experience,” said
Dervla McKay, Aircoach Managing Director.

“The Leap Card has been a great success story and joining the Leap Card system will allow
our customers to link up seamlessly with the public transport infrastructure. While this first
phase enables users to use their Leap Card as an ‘e-purse’, we are already working on our
next development phase to offer customers fantastic savings from schemes such as
Student/Young Adult fares etc. We are confident the Leap Card will be a win-win for
everyone involved.”

Leap Cards can be used to purchase any Aircoach ticket as an alternative to cash and for
those routes where the Free Travel Pass is accepted, customers can now tap their card on
our ticket machines.
