Bluebird Care Make it ‘Easi’ for Community in Bray

The team at Bluebird Care in Wicklow and South Dublin are making it ‘easi’ for the local community to get around with their recently announced sponsorship of Easi-Cab.

Easi-Cab provides a door-to-door service for people in wheelchairs covering South Dublin and all of East Wicklow. Their aim is to get people who might not be able to use public transport, out and about, allowing them to carry out their daily or weekly errands and visits.

The Easi-Cab Travel Club is an accessible Dial-a-Ride service that provides transport for people with disabilities, and for ageing and older people with mobility impairments, who are unable to access public transport. The Travel Club is open to people of all ages.

Bluebird Care Wicklow and South Dublin is delighted to sponsor four of their buses. Director Greg D’Arcy says, “our business ethos lends itself to this sponsorship. We really value the work that Easi-Cab are doing and congratulate the Easi-Cab team on their innovation and service to their community. We are proud supporters of this charity.”

Easi-Cab Director Anne Rorke says “The work that Bluebird Care are doing for the community really related to what we were doing so they were an ideal partner for this service.”
