Transport in Dublin

Leap Card

The City on your doorstep
The UCD campus boasts excellent transport links, with the city centre just a short 15-20 minute bus ride away. You can see all the sights our city has to offer by using a wide array of transport options including buses, trams and commuter trains.

Please note that while you can use your credit/debit card to travel on the Luas (tram) or the Dart (commuter train), you will need to pay with coins on Dublin Bus.

Make sure you buy a Leap Card - these can be purchased in the UCD Centra and cost €5. You can top up these cards using the Leap Card App, available on Android and Apple devices. This allows you to tap on to all forms of public transport in Dublin for a cheaper fare, and is much more convenient than paying in coins.
