The ethos of the SU is to provide quality services on a non-profit basis to support students throughout their college life.
Leap Cards/Bus Tickets
Student Leap Card
Student Leap cards are available from the Students’ Union at a cost of €10 (2016/2017). Forms are available from the SU and your photograph will be taken in the SU when you are ready to buy your card.
Do your homework and check out the best ticket option for you: http://cork.leapcard.ie/
Do not buy AN ADULT LEAP CARD if purchasing Student Commuter Tickets. This will mean you are buying commuter bus tickets at adult fares and not student discounted fares. An Adult Leap Card may be more economical for single journeys on local bus service.
Leap Card Collection Device
The Students' Union has a Leap Card Collection Device which allows the user to:
- activate products which have been purchased online (it may take up to 36 hours to load the product after it has been purcahsed)
- check balance and products curently available on a leap card
- activate tax saver tickets (staff)
Bus tickets (Wayfarer System)
Middleton/Cobh Rail Monthly Commuter Tickets
The above tickets are not yet available on the Leap Card System. To accommodate students, the Students’ Union will sell these tickets on the old (wayfarer) system.
Student monthly return and single provincial bus tickets are on sale from the SU (these must be purchased on the day of outward travel, with the return journey being valid for one month). Simply produce your college ID to avail of this service.
Please note: the SU can accept both student card and cash payments.
