Bus Eireann rejects claim that fares are to cheap to Donegal

A Fine Gael Senator from Dublin has complained that Bus Eireann fares to Letterkenny are to cheap compared to other areas of the country.

Catherine Noone is a Fine Gael Senator for Dublin South East and claims there are serious discrepancies in the price commuter belt customers are being charged to travel to and from Dublin.

She says someone travelling to Navan from Dublin is charged 22 cents a kilometre but if there are going to Letterkenny, the cost is just 8 cents per kilometre.
