The placing of the responsibility for integrated local and rural transport with the NTA, including managing the RTP, has had the effect of consolidating the oversight of all State funded local and rural transport services. It enables the development of better links between local and rural transport services and scheduled bus and rail services. It also enables each TFI Local Link office to identify gaps in service provision and to fill those gaps gradually in the most effective way, subject to funding.
TFI Local Link Wexford work with 11 bus operators, all based in Co Wexford to provide public transport. The bus operators are contracted to provide all TFI Local Link Wexford services of which there are two types;
- RRS – Regular Rural Services. These operate to a set timetable multiple times a day for 5, 6 or 7 days each week.
- DRT – Demand Responsive Transport. These are services that have a start and end time but they route may vary according to passenger bookings. Many of these services pick passengers up from their homes. These services generally operate one or two days each week.
