The union representing the majority of bus drivers providing school transport services across Northern Ireland was launching its Londonderry ‘Hands Off Free School Transport’ campaign today (Wednesday) at the Pennyburn Garage.

Speaking on behalf of Unite’s Education Authority bus drivers, Ciaran McCallion said: “The chair of the Education Authority has stated due to swingeing austerity cuts, households will face paying between £50 and £200 a child for school transport. We will not be accepting that.”
