Any study on the possible impact of changes in the school transport system on local traffic volume and safety such as that referred to by the Deputy would be a matter for the appropriate local authority, in this case Donegal County Council.  I would suggest that the Deputy raise the matter with them.  As the school transport services comes under the remit of the Department of Education and Skills, the Deputy may wish to suggest to the County Council that they should liaise with that Department, should they wish to conduct a study.
