Key Priorities – 2014 to 2016

  • Implement the seamless transition of business/operations into the new Limerick TCU.
  • Adopt/incorporate NTA directives on financial returns and implement in the company procedures.
  • Coordinate delivery of transport services locally funded by NTA and new services under separate agreement for other agencies in the Limerick area.
  • Identify changes in rural transport environment and provide services in those areas where there is an unmet demand and research innovative methods of meeting that need.
  • Continue to consolidate and sustain existing transport services.
  • Monitor and connect to other transport providers in the Limerick area.
  • Work towards NIRTS through research and development in transport integration accommodating School, HSE and RTP transport services.
  • Continue to provide accessible transport where possible and support those in isolation
  • To improve efficiency of transport services through route planning and mapping
  • Engage in the development of County Transport Plans.

Social Inclusion

A key principle of the company is to provide innovative community based initiatives for transport services in rural areas with a view to addressing the issue of social exclusion in rural Ireland, which is caused by a lack of access to transport.



This company is supported by the Dept. of Transport, Tourism & Sport and administered by the National Transport Authority.
