Matthews Welcomes Review of Taxsaver Public Transport Ticket to Reflect Hybrid Working

A response to a Parliamentary Question by Green Party TD, Steven Matthews has confirmed that the National Transport Authority (NTA), in conjunction with the Department of Transport, is currently undertaking a review of their Taxsaver Ticket to reflect newer, more common hybrid work patterns. Discussing the review, Deputy Matthews said:

“This is very positive news for commuters, and it is something that has been frequently raised with me since the gradual return to offices post pandemic. While the standard Taxsaver ticket which reflects a more traditional 5 day working week may still be of benefit to many commuters, many more have seen their work patterns change to allow for more working from home or offsite.

“What I am seeking here is greater flexibility ion Taxsaver ticket options. I have engaged directly with the Minister for Transport and the NTA on this and there is a broad acceptance that many workers no longer need a 5 day per week ticket and could benefit financially if the Taxsaver reflected different work schedules.

“The review will bring in the Departments of Transport and Finance as well as the NTA and I will continue to liaise with officials from each group on behalf of constituents to ensure that progress continues in this area. We have already seen huge progress in public transport with the Greens in Government and this is another area which I will continue to liaise with the NTA on as their review continues. I hope to see progress on this in the short term.

“If anyone wants to be kept updates on this Taxsaver ticket issue, I would encourage them to write to me directly and I would be more than happy to keep them up to date”, concluded Deputy Matthews
