County Roscommon Disability Support Group operates an accessible bus service in conjunction with the MS Society Roscommon. The service was set up in 2006. This service is available to the organisation’s service users and people with disabilities and older people with mobility impairments that would be unable to access public transport.
The service enables the user to get to the RSG Centre, GP appointments, shopping and social outings. It is operated Monday to Friday from 9.30am – 4pm. All drivers are fully trained to operate accessible vehicles.
The service covers Co. Roscommon.
The service is dependent on fundraising and donations to cover its overheads. There is a big demand for this accessible service and it is not always possible to accommodate every request. It is hoped that additional transport can be purchased in the near future if suitable funding becomes available.
