Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  Following the establishment of the National Transport Authority (NTA) in December 2009, the implementation and development of integrated and accessible public transport infrastructure  as well as the  promotion of cycling and walking as a means of transport in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA),  comes under the remit of the NTA.  Noting this I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
