New bus service launched in Dromore

A NEW bus service will be launched in Dromore on Tuesday June 28.

Down Armagh Rural Transport (DART) is introducing MyBus - the new and innovative community bus service for registered members throughout the Banbridge Council area.

The aim of the service is to help rural dwellers who want to travel to nearby shopping destinations.

Councillor Carol Black will hold a meeting next Tuesday at 7.30pm in Dromore Community Centre. She said, “I am delighted about this new service for our community.

“In my campaign I said it was imperative that we have good rural transport for the area and this is another step towards helping that section of our community that suffer from social exclusion, who find it extremely difficult to have good access to the local shops.

“I hope that you will come along a support the launch.”

MyBus can be booked as an individual or a group and concessionary pass holders will be able to travel free or half fare. MyBus is a member’s only service and to qualify you will need to be registered for DART’s Dial-A-Lift service.

If you are a member of a community group, voluntary organisation or residents group based in a rural area and wish to find out more about the MyBus service or would like to explore setting up a MyBus service in your area please contact DART on 028 38317810.
