Letterkenny University Hospital last week launched a pilot initiative to switch the Renal Dialysis Transport service to more sustainable vehicles.
Throughout February, the Renal Dialysis Transport is set to be upgraded from being a service delivered by traditional taxis and hackneys, fuelled by diesel, to a sustainable transport provision which will be more cost-effective while significantly reducing the carbon footprint.
Six of the contracted Dialysis Transport taxi vehicles are due to be replaced with a mix of 6 sustainable vehicles, provided by Toyota Ireland and Nissan Ireland:
- 2 x Electric Vehicles (Nissan)
- 2 x Plug in Hybrids (Toyota)
- 2 x Hybrids (Toyota)
The pilot scheme was launched at LUH on Wednesday 31st January. See the photo special by Clive Wasson below:Tags:
