Education Authority Northern Ireland 

Parents in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, can now use an ingenious little web app to check if their children are eligible for school bus travel and apply online. The solution, developed by Esri Ireland, has received enthusiastic feedback from families following a highly successful pilot.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • The Education Authority can now deliver better, more convenient services for parents.
  • The ArcGIS web app helps to improve public confidence in the school transport application process.
  • This innovative use of GIS is contributing to significant time savings within the organisation.



"When the GIS web app is rolled out nationally, we expect to save over 58 days a year, which will free up staff to focus on delivering other important educational services."

Dale Hanna, transport manager at the Education Authority, Southern Region
