Parents in Donegal are advised to apply for school transport for the new school year 2018/19.
Cllr Patrick McGowan has called on families to apply for the scheme before the deadline date on Friday, 27 April 2018.
The School Transport Scheme supports transport to and from school for children who reside remotely from their nearest school. The scheme is operated by Bus Éireann on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.
Only new pupils need apply, for example, pupils starting Primary school or pupils moving to Post Primary school in Autumn 2018.
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.
