Murroe Community Council are conducting a feasibility study on a community car and other transport in our locality. We are surveying the unmet needs of all age groups who don’t/cannot use private cars and who would benefit from increased availability of public means of transport. The priority is the provision of transport for medical needs i.e. hospital/doctor/physio appointments but we are also collecting information on other transport needs. A questionnaire is being distributed in the neighbourhood. We are trying to distribute the questionnaire as widely as possible but if we miss out on your house, there are copies available in the local shops and businesses.

N.B. Please put your name and contact number on the slip attached to the questionnaire, not on the questionnaire itself, in order to comply with GDPR regulations.

Please contact Carmel Hogg if you have any queries about this questionnaire or if you would like to fill it in over the phone. Landline 061 386323, mobile 086 4088919
