School Transport Scheme – application closing date

The closing date for school transport applications for both primary and post-primary schools is Friday, 26 April, 2019.

If you are applying for the transport scheme for the first time, you can apply online on buseireann.ie.

If your child is eligible for school transport and is using it already, you do not need to apply again. Bus Éireann will contact you about transport for the next school year.

For enquiries about timetables, pick-up points, routes and applications for transport grants you should contact your local Bus Éireann school transport office.

You can read more on citizensinformation.ie about the primary school transport scheme and the post-primary school transport scheme.

Property alert service

The Property Registration Authority has set up a property alert service to let property owners monitor their registered properties for fraudulent activity. Property fraud could involve someone pretending to be you, and trying to sell or mortgage your property without you knowing.

If you sign up to the property alert service, you will get an email or text if someone lodges an application relating to your property with the PRA. If the activity is fraudulent you can take action if necessary. The property must be registered with the Land Registry but you do not have to be the owner of the property.

To find out more, visit prai.ie and to sign up for the service, visit landdirect.ie.
