RTN Submission on Restructuring

Posted by aoconnell on June 13, 2013 under Members, News |

The Rural Transport Network submitted a  document entitled “RTN Submission on restructuring of RTP 25th February 2013” to Minister Alan Kelly

Within this submission we advocated for:
1. The establishment of 25 County Integrated Transport Units (CITU) operating to county boundaries (and across county boundaries by necessity to maximise efficiencies)
2. Each of CITU Units will act as agents of the National Transport Authority
3. Each CITU Unit will have allocated core funding (a guaranteed, sustained consistent level of funding allocated for the administration of the CITU).

RTN welcomes and supports Minister Alan Kelly’s announcement to introduce the Rural Hackney Scheme.

The Rural Transport Network welcomes and supports Minister Alan Kelly’s announcement to introduce the Rural Hackney Scheme.

Ms Fiona O’ Shea, Chairperson of the Rural Transport Network said “This scheme has the potential to work alongside rural transport programme and meet unresolved needs which continue to exist in rural communities. The Rural Transport Network particularly welcomes the focus on social inclusion, rural isolation and community ownership”  Rural Transport Network Press Release on Rural Hackney 12th June 2013
