Many members of the CTTC operate school transport services through a private arrangement with parents or schools.
Many members also operate services in the School Transport Scheme that is operated by Bus Eireann on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills.
The CTTC represents members' interests in both circumstances, but is not permitted to negotiate on its members behalf with Bus Eireann.
The CTTC has grave reservations about the School Transport Scheme as operated by Bus Eireann, and has advised sucessive governments that the management of this scheme should be put out to tender to ensure transparency and the best value for the State's investment. The CTTC sees the National Transport Authority (NTA) as the ideal manager of this Scheme.
