Why get involved

Transition Year – time to get thinking

Transition Year is a time to get creative! Your Junior Certificate is behind you and now you have a year ahead to explore what makes you tick.

Project work forms a central part of the TY curriculum for many schools because projects help you to learn in a critical way. Whether you decide to enter our new Go Places with Bus Éireann competition as part of your school project work or not, we believe that the experience of entering will be a positive one for you.

By getting involved in Go Places you could develop self-directed learning skills that will really stand to you when you enter the Leaving Certificate cycle. It may help you to explore some career options and could even develop your communication skills.

There are also some great prizes up for grabs! You can read more about them here.

Public transport – Keeps everyone moving

We all use public bus transport at some point in our lives and the importance of public transport is growing globally, as well as in Ireland. It literally keeps huge numbers of people moving on a daily basis.

Bus Éireann is the leading provider of public transport in regional cities and across rural Ireland. Our motto is ‘at the heart of the community’. We take this role very seriously and we are constantly striving to improve and innovate in how we deliver our services.

Get involved!

What ideas do you have that could change or possibly improve how we operate our services?

  • How could we harness technology better? Apps? You Tube? Social Media?
  • Are there ways we could encourage more students to wear seatbelts?
  • How can the bus help Ireland reduce its carbon footprint and be a friend to the environment?
  • Could we communicate to students, parents or schools in a different or better way – and if so, how?
  • How could your local sport club use the bus to its advantage?
  • How can Bus Éireann best serve the needs of students, the community and wider society into the future?

These are just some questions to get you thinking. We really want to hear YOUR ideas. So what are you waiting for? Think outside the box and get your mind in motion.
