Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

I set out my policy proposals for public transport reform in statements to the public transport partnership forum in November 2002 and the Oireachtas Committee on Transport in June 2003.

Since then, both I and my officials have had discussions with the managements of Bus Átha Cliath and Bus Éireann on my proposals for reform of the regulatory framework for public transport.
