Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding relating to public transport. However, I am not involved in the operation of public transport. 

The issue raised is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in conjunction with Iarnród Éireann. I have therefore referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
