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 issues raised are matters for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), in conjunction with the Luas operator, Transdev, and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to TII for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.

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