The department has been engaging intensively with Bus Éireann to ensure the safe operation of school transport services for when schools reopen. You will find detailed information and guidance here on the operation of School Transport Scheme services for the 2020/2021 school year.
Please read the attached information and guidance carefully. Please talk to your child or children about how they should use school transport services for the coming school year so that they know what to expect and what will be different from previous years.
