The Higher Education Minister says college campuses need to work with town and city councils, to ensure a safer environment for students travelling home from nights out.

Simon Harris says he plans to contact the Transport Minister in the hopes of re-establishing Dublin’s NiteLink services which are not due to return when clubs reopen.

The 11pm curfew on bars and the return of nightclubs is still set to go ahead next Friday, but getting a lift home on the bus won't be an option.

Higher Education Minister Simon Harris says reestablishing Dublin’s NiteLink service could be one step in making our streets safer.

President of Union of Students in Ireland Clare Austik says even if nightclubs don’t open next week, there a transport problem right now.

 

Meanwhile, Transport for London has announced the city’s night tube will return to service next month.
