Review of Home to School Transport Policy

The current home to school transport policy circular was issued in 1996 and has remained broadly unchanged

In December 2018 the Department embarked on a review of the current home to school transport policy as part of a wider Education Transformation Programme. The review had to be paused due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and is now on hold pending the outcome of the Independent Review of Education. 

Any proposed changes to the structure of the education system would have a fundamental impact on the home to school transport policy, which would need to be considered before progressing any further with a review of transport. The recommendations from the Independent Review of Education are expected in 2023.
