The School Transport Scheme supports transport to and from school for children who reside remote from their nearest school. The scheme is operated by Bus Éireann on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.
Applications for the School Year 2020/21 must be made by the last Friday in April.
Only new pupils need apply, for example pupils starting Primary school or moving to Post Primary School, or those who are changing home address or school.
Applications for pupils with special educational needs arising from a diagnosed disability should be made through The National Council for Special Education.
Details of all existing pupils who currently hold tickets are already recorded and the email address provided in the registration process previously is used to communicate with families in July when it is time to pay the school transport charges for the new school year.
Payment for school transport tickets may be made online between late June and the last Friday in July. Details of the closing date will be published soon.
