Ethical travel proves costly

My daughter came to visit us recently from Coventry. For environmental reasons, she will no longer travel by plane.
She was able to book a return train from Coventry to Liverpool for £20 and return passage by boat to Belfast for £30. On arrival, she had to pay £10 for a taxi to Europa Bus station and £10 each way to Omagh by bus.
It is iniquitous that she had to pay such a high proportion of her travel on the three miles between the ferry and the bus station.
Only in Northern Ireland would this happen.
