Who is Fermanagh Community Transport? 

Fermanagh Community Transport provides rural community transport services which are accessible and affordable to individuals and communities right across Fermanagh.    

Services that are available for members include:

Dial a Lift service which is currently fully funded through the Rural Transport Fund.   This is a door-to-door service for those who live in rural areas and are isolated due to lack of transport. We provide this service using a mixture of services including 12 minibuses and volunteer car drivers. FCT has access to the most up to date and accessible vehicles on the market for the benefit of our members.

Member Group Hire Scheme available to member groups and organisations.  There are approximately 200 member groups as members. All 10 of our accessible minibuses are available for community and voluntary groups to hire at an affordable rate, therefore making services and activities more accessible. Groups can hire our vehicles either with a FCT driver or on hire without driver. Please note that all drivers must hold a valid MiDAS certificate and be registered with FCT.

Disability Action Transport Service. This service is provided by FCT on behalf of Disability Action.
