3,500 kids use school transport system
A total of 3,567 pupils across Wicklow avail of the Bus Eireann school transport scheme.
Every day the scheme brings pupils to and from school on 123 buses on 178 school runs.
To mark this Bus Eireann is running a Go Places competition for Transition Year students where they are asking TY students from Wicklow to get creative in making memories about their journey to school.
Students are being invited to submit projects in words, photographs, or videos about their journey to school.
Whether they travel by foot, bike, car or bus – Bus Éireann want to hear about your journey. Where do they go? How do they spend that time? Who do they travel with? Who are the people and what are the places in the community that they pass by every day, and what are their stories?
The deadline for the competition is on March 16.
Three lucky winners will receive an iPad and the overall winner will also receive a day trip to Tayto Park for their class with entry and private coach transport to and from their school included.
