‘Use transport voucher scheme’

MOYLE SDLP Councillors Catherine McCambridge and Dónal Cunningham have urged rural community groups to take up the Transport Fund Voucher Scheme. This scheme is aimed at rural community groups and organisations wishing to transport 17 or more passengers. The scheme provides a £100 voucher towards the cost of a specified trip for successful applicants.

Supported by the Rural Transport Fund the scheme works in partnership with private transport operators who deliver transport for the scheme.

Application packs are now available for those non-profit making community groups who are planning on travelling during October, November and December 2012 and the closing date to return the completed applications is 31st August 2012.

To receive an application pack please contact the Department for Regional Development on 02890540620.
