Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 50 to 54, inclusive, together.

As Minister for Transport, 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.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally and for the scheduling of these services. Therefore, the issues raised are a matter for the NTA, and I have forwarded the Deputy's questions to the Authority for direct reply.

Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
