Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 164, 165 and 167 together.

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

The issues raised are a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in conjunction with Iarnród Éireann and I have therefore referred the Deputy's questions to the NTA for direct reply.

Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.

Question No. 165 answered with Question No. 164.
