Free Public Transport for those fleeing Domestic Violence

The Infrastructure and Justice Minister today issued a press release, in conjunction with Translink, announcing free public transport for those fleeing domestic abuse to emergency refuge/NIHE accommodation, where arranged through 24hr DSA Helpline, NIHE or Women’s Aid.  This will be available for men, women and their children.   Note that this does not replace the current taxi provision through NIHE rather supplements it.
