The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross TD, has today delivered on his personal commitment to ensure that each public transport board includes at least one director with direct personal experience of disability.

Upon taking office, Minister Ross made clear that one of his priorities would be to ensure that the voices of people with a disability would be heard at the top of those bodies responsible for the provision of public transport.
