Holders of free travel passes can now use Dublin Bus and Bus Eireann services at any hour of the day. Peak-time travel restrictions were abolished by social and family affairs minister Seamus Brennan on 25 September, in a move which could add up to 2 million per year to the free travel scheme costs. Pensioners, welfare recipients, carers and the disabled will benefit from the new ruling, which sees peak-time limits lifted for the first time in almost 40 years.
