Local Hackney Pilot Scheme

As you might be aware, the National Transport Authority has selected Borrisoleigh, Co. Tipperary for participation in the Local Hackney Pilot Scheme, which was launched by the Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan TD, on January 9. We are now looking for people to apply to operate a local hackney for the Borrisoleigh area.


A grant of up to €6,000 is available for a localised, specially licenced hackney service to help improve transport choices for people living in rural locations across the country. The grant aided Local Hackney Pilot programme is designed to encourage new part-time local hackney services to operate in communities which could not support a full time taxi or hackney operation. Applications to take part in the Pilot Programme can be made at localhackney.ie


As part of the roll out of this scheme, the NTA are reaching out to persons in the areas selected to spread the word to people in local communities who would be interested in taking part. They can find more information on www.localhackney.ie or by calling the SPSV information line on 0818 064000


We would greatly appreciate if you could spread the word regarding the Local Hackney Pilot to your members/ social media and/ or notify others in your area that maybe interested (sample attached).


Deadline for apps is: 28th Feb 2023.


We are also happy to provide further information, please call Chris Murtagh on 086-0623200
