Deadline for payment for School Transport Scheme next Friday July 26

Bus Éireann asks parents to pay for School Transport on time to allow for the timely administration of the scheme

Over 117,000 tickets to be administered before school returns in 7 weeks’ time

Parents and guardians of primary/post-primary school students are being reminded that the closing date for payment for the School Transport Scheme is Friday, July 26th. 

Bus Éireann, who operates the Scheme on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills (DoES), is encouraging parents to pay for their bus tickets on time, so that seats can be allocated and organised in a timely way, and therefore also allowing any remaining seats on the buses to be distributed to students who are in need of transport, but who fall outside of the eligibility criteria set down by the Department.
