The Rural Links to Health & Wellbeing service is a community transport service funded by The National Lottery Community Fund Northern Ireland and delivered by Easilink Community Transport.
The aim of the service is to help people who do not have access to public transport or their own private transport to attend Hospital appointments and other health related appointments and activities across the Western Trust area.
The service is delivered primarily by our volunteer car drivers, and we have accessible vehicles for those with mobility issues.

This applies to one friend, carer or family member only – any additional passengers must pay the fare as outlined.
