Bus Connects tickets are likely to cost about €2.50.
The ticket will allow any number of bus, Luas and Dart journeys within a 90 minute period.
The National Transport Authority has said while the fare hasn't been finalised it looks set to cost from 2.25 to 2.50.
A spokesperson told The Irish Times that a person can commence the last leg of their journey at the 89th minute regardless of how long the final leg will take.
The plan acknowledges that some bus users who currently have a direct route may have to change buses under the new plans.
The paper is also reporting that the NTA is considering a LocalLink type service to transfer locals to hospital appointments, the post office and employment centres.
