Castlepollard Selected For Hackney Scheme Pilot

Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan TD, together with the National Transport Authority (NTA), is launching a grant-aided programme to encourage the creation of new, part-time hackney services in communities that could not support a full-time taxi operation.

We are delighted that Castlepollard is one of 21 rural areas chosen to participate in this new pilot scheme.
