About the rural transport programme

Seventeen Transport Co-ordination Units (TCUs) coordinate bus services for people living in remote areas, and to integrate them with wider public transport services.   These units all operate under the Local Link banner - although in some places they have separate brands.

Information about these, and the overall local transport timetable and services is available from the LocalLink website.
