Local Link Service Updates

Local Link services continue to operate except Local Link evening services on Door to Door routes (DRT) which are currently suspended. These resources will instead be redeployed, where practical, to the delivery of community support service for passengers who need medical and food supplies within rural areas, in particular the elderly, the vulnerable, and the sick.

Local Link is:

  • Offering a collect and deliver service from pharmacies and local shops for passengers delivering critical medical supplies to the elderly, the vulnerable and sick within rural areas. Those in need of such support should contact their Local Link provider.
  • Also providing additional trips where possible for essential travel to purchase provisions. 
  • Following all guidelines as issued by the National Transport Authority and continues to follow all public health guidelines issued by the Chief Medical Officer and the HSE. As always, please continue to considerate to one another when using public transport, practice social distancing, regular hand-washing and remember to cough/sneeze into your elbow.

We would like to thank everybody working to keep Local Link operating and ask our passengers to work together as we try to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We would like our passengers to follow these guidelines when using Local Link services.
