The research was undertaken as part of the Department for Regional Development (DRD) Integrated Transport Pilot Project.
This research gathers views from passengers who used the Dial-A-Lift (DAL) service and other transport options provided by Rural Transport Partnerships in rural areas, and the views of the operators of the services.
