The History of TFI Local Link Cavan Monaghan

Cavan Monaghan Transport Co-Ordination Unit CLG trading as TFI Local Link Cavan Monaghan was set up at the end of 2014 as, as part of the national restructuring of the Rural Transport Programme by the National Transport Authority (NTA).

Previously, rural transport was managed by 35 companies across Ireland, in Co. Cavan this was provided by Kilnaleck and District Community Cooperative under CART, and in Monaghan by Latton Social Services & Development Ltd as Balti Bus.

In order to reduce the number of individual companies involved in the running of rural transport, initially 17 new TCU regions were defined this has now been consolidated into 15 TCU regions, of which Cavan Monaghan is one.

The guideline for the new TCU’s specified that these must be independent companies, hence the setting up of Cavan Monaghan Transport Co-Ordination CLG (CMTCU). Staff from the previous companies took up positions within CMTCU on 1st February 2015.
