Dublin Bus has launched a new online fare calculator on its website; www.dublinbus.ie. This new feature will help customers calculate the exact cost of their journey on Dublin Bus services using cash or Leap Card. The calculator includes a simple user interface which calculates the cash or Leap Card fare between two bus stops on each bus route. 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 stop and alighting stop.The calculator also provides information on child cash and Leap Card fares. Speaking about the new online calculator, Dublin Bus Spokesperson, Maria Brennan explained; “The Dublin Bus website now includes a range of tools for customers to plan their journey using Dublin Bus including Real Time Passenger Information and an inter-modal Route Planner. The addition of the Fare Calculator will further add to the convenience of using Dublin Bus to travel throughout the city.”To help customers become more familiar with the new tool, www.dublinbus.ie includes a step-by-step guide which brings them through the system. The calculator is now live on the company’s website and is also being developed for Dublin Bus’ free smartphone apps and will be available on these apps later in 2013.
