For anybody using public transport regularly, you should really consider www.taxsaver.ie

It allows you purchase an annual ticket through your employer while claiming tax relief on it. Depending on your ticket type, you can save hundreds of euro each year. It also saves you having to buy your weekly/daily ticket.

Citylink are great value and just as comfortable as the 3x more expensive Irish Rail.

I have a tax saver Luas ticket - it's great. I might uses busses more but I find them very user unfriendly if you're not intimately familiar with the routes and fares.

If they introduce integrated ticketing at some stage that'll make busses far more attractive for me.

I rarely use public transport but I do like the Luas. Quite simply, it does the job. Don't know how it compares in terms of value for money though.

Integrated ticketing is akin to the return of the messiah. Both highly implausible and extremely unlikely to happen in our lifetimes.

Dublin bus. I hate them but there's no other way to get to town.

I love them! Cheap and the staff are really nice. Or they were the last time I travelled with them.

How does it work? I had a look on the luas site but it's a bit confusing

Your employer purchases the ticket on your behalf and then takes the cost from your salary in monthly instalments. However, because the amount has been taken off your salary, you don't pay tax on it.

My annual ticket costs about €1150, but I only pay something like €560 for it. The annual ticket includes travel in Nitelinks, Airlinks and the late night Christmas Luas service.

Cool. Must ask them if they can do this.

I take the Luas every day and it is quite pricey, even getting the weekly ticket

It's well worth checking out. In the meantime, if you use a Luas smart card you'll save a few cent on each journey.
