Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Integrated Ticketing Leap Card system became a function of the National Transport Authority (NTA) with effect from 30th September 2010 in accordance with section 58 of the DTA Act 2008. In the light of this it was agreed between the NTA and the Project Board that the Board would stand down at the end of 2011.

I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply to the specific queries raised regarding the rollout of the integrated ticketing system.  Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
