There appears to have been some problems with people trying to use the new Bus Eireann school bus payments system. The new system only seems to work with Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer 9 (or higher). Many people have reported problems registering or paying – but Bus Eireann say that most issues are related to the type of interent browser used.
Parents who missed the deadline of August 1st for School Transport Payments can still make payments. Bus Eireann say that late payments will be processed in due course and where seats are available tickets will be issued. Where no seats are available payments will be refunded.
There is a temporary helpline 1800 945 945 for those having online technical issues with school transport payments. This is open this week from 0900 to 2000.
