About us

The Coach Tourism & Transport Council of Ireland (CTTC) is the representative body for Ireland’s coach touring companies, and Ireland’s private bus operators. The organisation positively promotes Ireland’s independent bus and coach hire operators.

We recognise that our members are experts in all types of coach hire and transport solutions including: airport transfers, day tours, extended touring, incentive travel, golf tours, school transport, and scheduled services.

OUR MISSION

The purpose of the CTTC organisation is to protect and promote the interests of its members on a national and international level. We work with all key stakeholders to ensure that the industry is respected and recognised for its contribution economically, socially and environmentally to Ireland and to advise on training opportunities for people employed within the sector.

The primary focus of the CTTC is to be recognised as the leading industry representative body and to become a trusted advisor of key stakeholders providing insights and industry knowledge that will enhance the policy landscape in which we operate.
