Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Deputy is likely aware that consideration of fares and ticketing systems forms an integral part of the BusConnects programme as provided for in the National Development Plan and which is being implemented by the National Transport Authority (NTA), in  line with their statutory functions.

Noting their responsibility in relation to this matter, I have forwarded the Deputy's query to the NTA for their consideration and direct reply.  Please notify my office if you have not received a reply within 10 working days. 

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
