Some school pupils will be affected by Bus Éireann strike tomorrow

Most school pupils will be unaffected by the strike action by workers at the bus company.

BUS ÉIREANN HAS warned that a small number of school transport ticket holders are set to be impacted by the disruption to its services caused by workers going out on strike earlier today.

Around 2,500 school transport ticket holders – out of a total of 114,000 – use public transport services to travel to and from school and are likely to be impacted by disruption caused by workers going on strike.

Parents and guardians are advised to check the Bus Éireann website as well as media outlets tomorrow but the company anticipates that most of the 114,000 school transport ticket holders will be able to get to and from school.

Workers affiliated to the National Bus and Rail Union went on strike this morning in a dispute over cost-cutting measures at the transport operator with 95 per cent of its bus services affected as a result.
