THE Government has been accused of doing a u-turn over school transport in the Finn Valley.
The Finn Valley School Transport Action Group claims promises made in June have already been broken.
“At a meeting with a civil servant in the Transport Section, Dept of Education and Skills on 24th of June, FVSTAG committeee members and TD Dinny McGinley were advised that once Parents wrote to Department advising that Deele College was over capacity that transport for this year would automatically roll over to Stranorlar and so would the Medical Card,” said a FVSTAG spokesman.
“However, it has now emerged, that Medical Card Holders are being asked to pay for their concessionary ticket and that their appeals have been turned down.
“Fvstag are advising families affected by this to contact the civil servant and her department and query why their appeal was turned down after assurances had been given on June 24th.
