School Transport Safety Programme

School Transport Safety Programme


At Bus Éireann, it is our priority to ensure children are safe when travelling on our services, therefore all Bus Éireann school buses are fitted with seat belts.

To reinforce the importance of wearing a seat belt while travelling on school buses, we have launched a safety campaign to raise awareness among children, parents, and teachers.

We would like to introduce you to ‘Buster & The Beltups’. Bus Éireann’s mascot, ‘Buster’, is joined by a quirky bunch of characters called ‘The Beltups’. This group are on a mission to encourage children to wear seat belts while travelling on the school bus.

Check out our video (above) to see them in action!
