The Rural Transport Network (RTN) is the representative body of the 17 Transport Co-Ordination Units, CLASP Sligo (Community of Lough Arrow Social Project) and Comharchumann Chéire Teo – Cape Clear Islands Bus Service. These companies deliver a broad range of transport services under the Rural Transport Programme (RTP) on behalf of the National Transport Authority and Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport under the national brand – Local Link.
Local Link plays a vital role in delivering services in local areas, particularly in some of the most remote rural areas, providing a lifeline for many in terms of social inclusion and connectivity.
The service models provided by Local Link include;
• Scheduled Fixed Transport – These are high frequency services with a regular route, stopping places and timetables.
• Scheduled Flexible Transport – these operate to timetabled departures but can deviate from route to pick up/set down passengers closer to their destination.
• Demand Responsive – This is a door to door service responding to requests for services and operates by making specific trips to pick up and drop off passengers at their own door.
