How Can We Help?
Do I have to wear a mask on the school bus/transport?
Yes, if you are a post-primary student, it is mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport and school transport unless you have a reasonable excuse not to.
This includes on:
- Education Authority buses
- Translink dedicated school buses
- Private coaches and taxis used to travel to school
- Public trains, buses and ferries
You will only be exempt from wearing a mask if you have a reasonable excuse for not wearing one. For example, if you have a physical or mental impairment or disability or it causes you severe stress.
You can find out further information on reasonable excuses here.
