In November of last year, a passenger travelling in Cavan asked the driver for a receipt and was given a hand-written one.

The passenger complaints to the National Transport Authority, and an NTA investigation issued the driver a fine for failing to issue a receipt as requested.

The other complaint was in Monaghan, where a passenger complained that they were charged €20 for a trip that they were used to paying €11 for with a different driver.
