Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 442 and 455 to 459, inclusive, together.

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  The National Transport Authority (NTA) has the statutory responsibility for the regulation of fares in relation to public passenger transport services. I have therefore referred the Deputies questions to the NTA for reply.  Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
