As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. However, I am not involved in the day to day operations of public transport.
Under the Dublin Transport Authority Act 2008, the National Transport Authority has statutory responsibility for promoting the development of an integrated, accessible public transport network. However, as the Deputy in this instance is referring to a specific Bus Éireann service, I have forwarded his question to Bus Éireann for direct reply to him. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
