No payment or medical card details will be needed but families will be requested to confirm that transport is required for the 2022/2023 school year through a new confirmation process which will be available on the Bus Éireann family portal.
Bus Éireann will issue instructions to applicants in an email. Please follow the instructions in this email when you receive it to ensure your application is considered for the 2022/2023 school year. Please check your email account that you registered to the Bus Éireann school transport portal for updates.
- Families who have already applied for their tickets for the 2022/2023 school year will have their application processed in the usual way, but without a fee being charged
- Families who have already paid/entered medical card details for their ticket do not need to take any further action. Where fees have already been paid, these will be refunded in the coming period
- Families who have not yet paid for their ticket will need to confirm they still require a ticket by 29 July 2022 in line with the process above
- Normal eligibility criteria will apply and tickets will be allocated accordingly
