Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport in Ireland. However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport.

The issue raised is a matter for both the National Transport Authority (NTA) and Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII).

Accordingly, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA and TII for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 51.
