While public/rural transport is operating, the numbers travelling are low presently. Accordingly, there is spare capacity available within Local Link Cork.
Local Link Cork would like to target this capacity into the provision of transport to medical appointments or medically related requirements. To reiterate, vehicles which are mostly minibuses have the necessary room to allow for social distancing and particularly where the trips are designed for one person perhaps with a travelling companion. Each request will be assessed on its own basis and will as far as possible be provided at no cost to older and vulnerable people and people with disabilities. Also to note the transport is fully accessible.
People who would like to utilise this service should give as much notice as possible, ideally 24 hours.
If you need this service, contact details to arrange same are as follows:
· North or East Cork – Tel: 025-51454 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
· West Cork – Tel: 027-52727 or e-mail email@example.com
Naturally this service will not be sustainable long term but during the present pandemic restrictions and while Local Link Cork have capacity to respond, the service will remain available as outlined.
