Commute to Dublin or Waterford with Wexford Bus & Save up to 52%

Employers can purchase monthly, quarterly or annual Tax Saver Tickets for employees commuting to work between Dublin and Wexford, within Wexford or between Wexford and Waterford. Employers purchase Wexford Bus Tax Saver Tickets on your behalf, the cost of the ticket is then deducted from your gross salary so you don’t pay any tax, PRSI, universal social charge or benefit in kind on this amount.

The savings to you will be up to 52% on the price of the ticket. This tax saving scheme is run in conjunction with the Revenue Commissioners to encourage employees to use public transport. Employees aren’t the only ones to benefit from this scheme, as employers make PRSI savings of up to 10.75% of the total ticket cost.
