The Department of Education is in the process of conducting a review of the School Transport Scheme. The review began in February 2021 and encompasses the School Transport Scheme for Children with Special Educational Needs and the Primary and Post-Primary School Transport Schemes. The review is being conducted with a view to examining the current scheme, its broader effectiveness and sustainability and to ensure that it serves students and their families adequately. The review will also examine the potential for integration of different strands of the scheme and a more co-ordinated approach with other Government Departments that also use transport services. It will also consider issues such as climate action, rural development and promoting where possible initiatives that encourage walking and cycling to school. As part of the review process the Department will, over the coming weeks, conduct a stakeholder engagement process with school communities, parents and guardians, primary and post-primary students, the education partners and other relevant stakeholders. Please find attached a link to the survey for parents/guardians below. Closing date for completing the survey is Thursday 10th February 2022. https://dessurveys.education.gov.ie/surveys/post-primary-pupils-school-transport-survey
