Capping means that you won’t get charged more than the price of a 1 Day or 7 Day Luas Flexi Ticket using Leap Card. 

Capping is part of the Leap Card functionality. It introduces a Cap; a maximum amount you pay for
Luas travel during 1 day or 7 days (Mon-Sun) with Leap Card. After you reach the Cap the rest of
your travel during that 1 day or 7 days is free. 

You don’t need to do anything; just your use your Leap Card as normal. The Caps will be applied automatically. 

  • Daily Cap = first to Last tram on any given day.
  • Weekly Cap (Mon-Sun) = first tram on Monday to last tram on Sunday.
Daily Weekly
Adult €7.00 €27.50

Capping also applies when you are using more than one transport operator (Dublin Bus, Luas & Irishrail/Commuter Rail). The maximum you can spend on transport in any one day is €7.50 and €30.00 in any one week.
