The provision of transport has impacted hugely on our service. Without this provision we would not be in a position to offer afterschool services. Parents would not be in a position to pay full cost of transport in addition to increase in Childcare costs due to less of staffing grants.
We are delighted KCT can provide the afterschool transport service for us. It is a professional reliable service providing ease of mind for our service and our parents
Without Community Transport, it’s isolation for us people in rural areas. Total isolation – which could lead to depression
Quiet Happy, one phone call will confirm collection at the front door, very useful for doctor appointments and weekly shopping and visiting neighbors in Dingle
I feel very independent – don’t have to ask anybody to take me to Dingle or wait, I meet up with my friends, it’s great
We do not own a car. The service is door to door. There is enough time to shop in Tralee. Very satisfied, it’s punctual, enough time to shop in town
I would not be able to manage without it now. I can get my shopping on Tuesday, go to the Daycare on Wednesday and also play cards at night. Without the bus I would have to stay at home. I hope the service keeps going because people of my age would not be able to get out and meet our friends without it
I think the Community Transport Bus is very important for people in rural communities and can bring them to town on a weekly basis especially as some people cannot drive.
Brilliant, Absolutely great, get to town, driver puts messages on the bus and drop me to the door excellent service, bus drivers are very patient and helpful
Just great to get out during the week and get to town. People would be lost without it
Gets me out of the house – a reason to get dressed up and go somewhere to meet people and have a chat
