Parents and guardians in Carlow are reminded that applications for school transport for the new school year 2022/23 will close on Friday April 29 2022.
This applies only for new applicants seeking primary and/or post-primary school transport for 2022/23.
Fianna Fáil TD for Carlow, Deputy Murnane O'Connor said:
"The closing date for new applications is fast approaching and all students who are eligible for school transport will receive seats if they have applied and paid by the relevant deadlines.
"I understand that no fees are required at this point as the payment portal will open in June 2022. Further communication will be sent to registered applicant families in relation to payments for school transport for the new school year.
"Reduced fares for school transport were announced as part of a package of Government initiatives to encourage greater use of public transport services and to assist with the overall increased cost of living.
"The annual family maximum contribution for post primary transport will reduce from €650.00 to €500 for the 2022/23 school year, with the family maximum fare for primary school transport reducing from €220 to €170."
