Concerns have been raised that some Ulsterbus drivers are not accepting euro currency from Inishowen passengers using the daily service from Muff to Derry.
A Muff resident told the Inishowen Independent that she attempted to pay with euro for a fare from the village to the city centre but was not permitted to do so.
The woman, who does not wish to be named publicly, said she had a €2 coin and a €5 note both of which the driver would not accept.
“Luckily, one of the passengers already on the bus was able to change some money into Sterling for me, otherwise I would not have been able to travel,” she said.
However, Translink – the parent company of Ulsterbus –dismissed the incident as an outlier, moving to assure Inishowen passengers that euro IS accepted on the cross-border route.
