1,775 applications for concessionary school transport were made in Kildare for this academic year.

Bus Eireann says children who are ineligible under existing transport schemes may apply for a concession.

These are subject to conditions which include "that the service has spare capacity, that routes are not extended or altered" and that "No additional State cost is incurred"

1,274 "tickets" were issued to applicants in Kildare, in respect of a total number of 31 available seats.

The data was released in response to a parliamentary question posed by Kildare South Fianna Fáil TD, Fiona O'Loughlin
