Home to school transport

The Education Authority has a statutory responsibility for the provision of transport assistance to facilitate attendance at a grant-aided school of pupils for whom fees are not paid and who are resident in Northern Ireland. This guide aims to help you navigate the transport application process.

 

Home to School Transport Update

Remember that home to school transport should only be used where you have no other alternative and you are encouraged to use active travel where possible.  Do not travel if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 or your household has been advised to isolate.

All pupils regardless of age are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering on all school transport if they can do so. Wearing a face covering is mandatory for post primary pupils on all forms of school transport. Exemptions apply for medical reasons and also for those pupils with special education needs or sensory difficulties.

If you are travelling with us please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, and maintain social distancing when you can.  There may be some disruption to services as we put in place new arrangements, please bear with us at this busy time.

We also have a dedicated Home to School Transport Helpdesk - 028 9598 5959 - which operates Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm.
