The National Transport Authority has today published its review of the proposed withdrawal of the Expressway Route 4 Service. We are urging all those who are or maybe affected to access the report and to make sure they have an input to the proposals. Remember lack of access to transport leads to social exclusion and isolation.
The proposal mainly affects counties Carlow, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow.
The review appears to be extensive but the people who can best judge the proposed solutions are those who live in the affected areas. If you are one of those people please take the time to read the report. In particular if your time is short please look at the proposed action items and timetables and see how they will affect you, your family or group.
Now is the time to have your say.
The action items/proposals arising from the NTA review are the following
- Bus Éireann to commence amended Expressway Route 4 service
- Bus Éireann to put in place the reconfigured 132 service
- NTA to procure the new rural transport services
- NTA to put in place the connecting rural transport services
We urge all local media in the affected areas to highlight the matter and to examine the impact of the NTA proposals for all local residents.
