Cllr Naoise O’Cearuil has urged Bus Eireann to take action and provide solutions to the many parents in the Greater Maynooth area who currently find them themselves without access to school transport on the eve of the new term.
Naoise said that dozens of parents from Rathcoffey, Kilcock and Maynooth have been in contact with him over the past number of weeks about transport for their children to school. Bus Éireann have told some parents that their children are no longer eligible for school transport and others have been left without any transport after the cancellation of a previous service.
Naoise said, “I’m finding it difficult to get answers from Bus Éireann but parental pressure and demand is key to finding a solution. I’ll keep working hard to get answers and ensure that children have a way to school and that the state provides that service.”
