Written answers (Question to Transport)

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 operation of public transport services.

The issue raised is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in respect of public obligation services and Bus Éireann in respect of the company's commercial services. 

I have therefore forwarded the Deputy's question to both the NTA and Bus Éireann for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
