Tram Ticket Machines Only Take Euros

Recommended Posts

Edinburgh News

TRAMS chiefs have been left red-faced after it emerged the city’s Spanish-built ticket machines will only accept euros.

The gleaming new machines, which have been installed at stops all along the eight-mile route, have been branded “worse than useless”, with opposition politicians demanding an immediate probe.

The mistake was apparently only spotted last week by a tourist who successfully bought a ticket with his change from home, only to be told he faced a wait of more than a month to get to York Place.

The firm which built the machines, Polof Rail, has since gone into administration, effectively leaving council chiefs to pick up the bill for any changes.

Polof Rail? Consider that name carefully ...
