Welcoming the news, the North Belfast MLA said.

“Having engaged extensively with the sector and the Department, I am pleased to have received confirmation from the Permanent Secretary today that our local community transport providers will receive an extension in their core ‘dial-a-lift’ funding beyond the end of April.

Community Transport remains a lifeline for many rural and isolated communities throughout Northern Ireland, providing in the region of 200,000 journeys annually.

We will continue to support and work alongside the sector to find a sustainable long-term solution beyond this current extension, that protects the vital services they provide.”
