Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Expanding Our School Bus Transport System

18 August, 2021

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s plan to expand the school transport system which would see an additional 17,000 seats funded on the School Transport Scheme in the next academic year and the elimination of fees over a five-year government term, removing the yearly stress for thousands of families trying to secure a seat on their local school bus. Sinn Féin’s plans would add more buses and routes, reduce carbon emissions from the transport sector, cut back school costs for families, and encourage the use of public transport from a young age.
