It's a bit early for Valentine's Day but why not bring your 'plus one' on the train too?
Leap card users can bring a 'plus one' on public transport for free this February Bank Holiday Weekend.
It runs from Saturday the 4th of next month until the bank holiday Monday, which is the 6th.
The National Transport Authority says Leap users only need to pay for themselves - and mention the plus one to bus drivers.
However on commuter trains, DART or Luas services the user only needs to tag on as usual and bring their plus one along.
Leap into Spring with the great Leap+1 special for the new February Bank Holiday Weekend when you can bring somebody with you for free with your #LeapCard on TII services on Feb 4th, 5th and 6th. @TFIupdates @Dept_Transport @greenparty_ie pic.twitter.com/r3wt33t2wv

Young Adult Leap
Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan says the Leap Card has gone from "strength to strength" with the roll out of the young adult card.
Over 80,000 young adult cards were registered from July 2022 to the end of the year.
The Minister continued, saying passenger numbers on public transport are now back to pre-covid levels.
Eamon Ryan says "this Leap +1 means that even more people can experience what our public transport system has to offer."
"It’s an initiative that’s good for friends and family and that’s good for our environment, as we enjoy this first February Bank Holiday.”
It comes amid calls for contactless payments on public transport services in Ireland - similar to the system available in London.
A pilot project is due in the second quarter of this year, according to reports over Christmas.
