Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 249 and 250 together.

The renewed Programme for Government of October 2009 commits the Government to the roll-out of Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) in Dublin and Cork in 2010 and to Limerick, Galway and Waterford in 2011.

The National Transport Authority will have responsibility for ensuring the delivery of the commitment in the Programme for Government.

I have allocated approximately €350m to the National Transport Authority in 2010, for the delivery of public transport projects, including Real Time Passenger Information. The Authority will engage with both Dublin City Council and Cork City Council on the delivery of on street Real Time Passenger Information in both cities this year.
