“LET’S TALK CLEANER GREENER TRANSPORT” CONFERENCE

 Mill Park Hotel , Donegal Town 

Wednesday 4th April at 9.30am.

Local Link Donegal/SITT will host “Let’s Talk Cleaner Greener Transport”  on Wednesday 4th April at 9.30am – 2pm in the Mill Park Hotel, Donegal Town. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for the findings of a pilot which was run over February and into March 2018. This pilot was the launch of an exciting new initiative at Letterkenny University Hospital, that aims to move Renal Dialysis Transport, which is coordinated and managed by Local Link Donegal/SITT, from being a service delivered by traditional taxis and hackneys, fuelled by diesel, to a sustainable transport provision which will be more cost effective while significantly reducing the carbon footprint.

There will be information on grants currently available, possible supports going forward and updates from the Taxi Regulation section of the National Transport Authority.

This will also be an opportunity to see at first hand a sample of sustainable vehicles available on the market.

More information about the Pilot and the Partners involved is available hereAgenda and List of Speakers
