Dear supporter, it has been a while since you had any news from us. While developments are still worrying there is still is nothing definite we can tell you. Instead we would like to share a video with you we have produced to celebrate 20 years of Clare Bus, which has been a journey of equality. We would appreciate if you could spend the 10 minutes to watch it, like it and share it widely to make it accessible to as many people as possible. Thank you kindly, the team at Clare Bus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLbTuXEBTyQ

Keep Clare Bus in Clare!
Reverse the decision of the National Transport Authority to transfer the Clare-TCU to West-Limerick
Why is this important?
Clare-TCU is the office where local dispatchers take calls for bookings, who know where all our regular passengers are based. We have 16 years’ experience of delivering a flexible and fully accessible bus service to the people of Clare and South Galway.
Dispatchers work closely with drivers to make sure the bus diverts to where the people are, facilitating bookings up to an hour before departure.
The dispatchers are the life force, that direct the bus service, look after drivers and, above all, look after the passengers. They are part of your community.
The TCU is the driving force behind Clare Bus, taken away from our community the service will be a shadow of its former self.
Impact on passengers: loss of the highly responsive service that has become a life line to many people.
Impact on Clare Bus: loss of dispatchers, taking out local control of service provision and development threatens the viability of the whole service and potentially puts 25 Clare jobs at risk.
