School Transport Service

First of all, I want to remind parents that applications for school transport for the next school year close today. Following the initial announcement that schools would be closed until the 29 March, and in light of the exceptional circumstances, it was agreed that school transport contractors would be paid at the normal or full rate for the period up to 29 March.

Subsequently, it was then decided that a payment of 50% would be afforded for the week commencing Monday 30 March until now. This 50% rate of payment will now continue to be paid to contractors while schools are closed in this academic year.

One of the other issues raised was the payment for bus services. Given that the school transport service has not been available to children for the last number of weeks, a refund for that period of closure will be issued to parents. The precise refund will be calculated at the end of the school year when the exact impact is known.
