Councillor Patrick McGowan is reminding families to apply for the School Transport Scheme before the deadline date of Friday, 27 April 2018.
The School Transport Scheme provides 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 should apply, for example, pupils starting primary school or pupils moving to post primary school in Autumn 2018.
Existing pupils details who currently hold tickets are already recorded. Families will be contacted in July to pay for transport.
