'Baby On Board' Badges For Pregnant Women On Public Transport


Share this article


Expectant mothers are being offered new 'baby on board' badges for use on public transport services from today.

The badges, being launched by the National Transport Authority, can be woren by pregnant women to let people know they may need a seat during their commute.

All public transport services across the country are backing the new scheme.

The free badges are availalbe at most tranport outlets and also at transportforireland.ie

Also, in partnership with EU Moms, expectant mothers at 17 of the 20 maternity hospitals nationwide will receive a badge within the Pregnancy Information Pack collected at their first scheduled hospital appointment.  This will serve to reach 90% of pregnant women annually.

Today’s launch follows a successful pilot programme undertaken across selected Iarnród Éireann services.  Due to positive feedback, Transport for Ireland decided to introduce the scheme at a national level.  Go-Ahead will be part of the scheme once their operations commence in early September 2018.
