The Bus Éireann School Transport Family Portal is now accepting Payments for the 2023/24 School Year. 

Important School Transport Update 2 June 2023

The deadline to confirm your school transport application for 2023/4 is Friday 9 June 2023

This means you must pay in full or input your child/ren’s medical card details before midnight on 9 June 2023. Already the significant majority of applicants have paid on time.  

Please be aware that it will not be possible to make payments or input medical card details from Saturday 10 June until the portal re-opens at 9.00am on Friday 30 June 2023.

The Bus Éireann portal will be closed so that our school transport teams around the country can process on-time and fully paid applications and begin to issue tickets during July. 

People will be able to make payments and apply from 30 June, however these applications and payments will be late and there can be no guarantee of a place being available as a result. 

Please note there is a separate application process for students with special educational needs and those from Ukraine, further information is available on - School transport (

For any customer with questions, the dedicated helpline number is 0818 919 910, available Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm.

The Customer Care contact form can be accessed at : Bus Éireann Customer Care Form 

For safety reasons, we would advise only students with a valid ticket for school transport will be permitted to travel on school transport services.

The School Transport Scheme supports transport to and from school for children who reside remote from their nearest school. The scheme is operated by Bus Éireann on behalf of the Department of Education.
