Axing of taxi rank at Beaumont Hospital "unacceptable" - Cllr Mac Donncha
Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor Mícheál Mac Donncha has strongly criticised the decision of management at Beaumont Hospital to remove the taxi rank from the grounds of the hospital.
"The decision of Beaumont Hospital management to axe the taxi rank is totally unacceptable. This rank provides a vital service to patients, staff and visitors in one of the largest hospitals in the country.
"It is a hospital with already limited public transport access, being served only by buses and taxis, and remote from trains and trams.
"This would also be a step back for people working in the taxi sector, many of whom come from the local community.
"I am urging Beaumont management to step back from this decision which they are due to implement at the end of June."
