As you are all aware, #Covid19 has had a detrimental effect on our local economy and world wide. Most businesses will have received some form of financial support, however the coach industry isn't one of them.
This morning, over 30 coach companies from across Northern Ireland departed from Titanic Quarter to take their appeal to the heart of the Executive at Stormont and we were one of them.
All this could not have been possible without the help of Karen Magill and Beverly Smylie from Bus and Coach NI. As Karen stated, "Time is running out to save our industry which is on it's knees right now. Without immediate and ongoing financial support, thousands of jobs could be lost and our once thriving coach industry could disappear overnight."
Coach companies are vital in society today, with customers relying on us for all sorts of travel, from tourism, to school transport and general private hire. We are a key part of the community we live in and as Karen further added, "This factor must be recognised and acknowledged with financial support now."
