Changes to community transport services
Current Government advice is to travel for essential journeys only.
There is a limited DATS and rural community transport service for essential journeys including people who need transport to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
To find out more visit the Disability Action website.
Contact details for your local Rural Community Transport Partnership is available from the NI Direct website.
Shopping and medication delivery service
Community transport operators are still offering a food and medication pick up and delivery service during lockdown. You do not have to be a member to use this service.
COVID-19 Guidance for safer travel
The Government has now published advice for safer travel during COVID-19 as restrictions are eased. This is available on the NI Direct website.
Face Coverings when using transport
From the 10th July 2020 passengers using public transport and community transport services will be required to wear a face covering.
There are exemptions to these rules for disabled people who find wearing a face covering very difficult or impossible.
You can find out more about the new regulations and exemptions from the NI Direct website.
