The Rural Transport Fund is pleased to announce the release of application packs for their Voucher Scheme in your area. These will cater for trips being made during the months of April, May and June 2013. The scheme allows groups to apply for a £100 voucher for one trip which they can use to subsidise part of their transport costs. These trips will be provided by an approved list of transport operators which will be enclosed within the application pack.

Applications are open to groups in all rural areas.

Groups are eligible to apply to the scheme if;
• They are formally constituted
• They are non-profit making.
• They are based in a rural area, or the majority / total membership of the group are rural dwellers
• They have 17 or more people travelling
Further details on eligibility can be found in the RTF Voucher Scheme’s Terms and Conditions for Applicants, which is issued in the Application Pack.

If successful the scheme will provide £100 towards the cost of your transport.
