The Road Safety Officer liaises with schools across the county on matters relating to road safety and the journey to and from school.
A Cycle Bus is a great way to travel to school with students cycling along a designated route with parents accompanying them. It is a parent/guardian/community-led initiative whereby several parents and volunteers lead groups of cycling students to one or more schools. Cycle Buses have a specific route with stops along the way where students can join.
Active Travel School Zones and Safe Routes to School aim to implement safety measures within the vicinity of the school to support more Active Travel on the journey to and from school. These projects are supported by the National Transport Authority, Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, and An Taisce.
