Minister Eoghan Murphy has agreed to the extension of the Dublin leap card arrangements for homeless families on a once off basis, for the month of August.

Arising from a commitment in Rebuilding Ireland, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government funds an initiative to provide homeless families residing in emergency accommodation in the Dublin Region with access to free public transport for essential school journeys.

The Dublin Region Homeless Executive has been overseeing implementation of this initiative and, working in partnership with the National Transport Authority, has put the necessary arrangements in place.

The Department will review long term leap card issue in the context of Budget 2020 engagements with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.
