Concerns over school bus tickets for children in medical card system

Parents of school children in Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal have expressed concern in relation to the School Bus Tickets to being provided to Children who are applying through the medical card system.

Owing to the cybersecurity attack on the HSE systems recently, Bus Éireann have been unable to offer the Medical Card verification system as part of the school transport payment.

Bus Eireann say they are working closely with the HSE to find a resolution to the Problem.

Sligo Drumcliff Independent Councillor Marie Casserly has been telling Ocean FM News that families who have availed of the scheme in the past will not have to enter their medical cards as payment for the new school year
