Dublin Bus notified the school by phone today Wednesday that Express Bus would not be providing a school bus from Thursday, 22 November 2018 due to a contractual difficulty. The school have not been able to get any response from Express Bus. We have sent a text message to all parents. If we get any further details re. the situation we will contact parents.
Update 29 November 2018: Mr Macnamara contacted Dublin Bus and impressed upon them the need to have a school bus made available as soon as possible, this was the response we got in reply.
On Wednesday 21 last, Dublin Bus had to terminate contracts with 2 services providers, who were engaged to provide passenger transport services with immediate effect. This action was taken due to the contractors not meeting their contractual performance obligations.
On behalf of Dublin Bus I wish to apologise for the inconvenience this has caused. We are currently actively working to engage replacement contractors. However, unfortunately, we will not be in a position to replace the services to your school before January 2019 at the earliest. We will be in contact with you directly with an update as soon as possible.
