The bus network review was submitted to my Department by Dublin Bus on 2 March 2006. Dublin Bus submitted an application for funding on 20 January 2006 for additional fleet requirements for 2006 and 2007. My Department is examining this application in the context of Transport 21, the future bus needs of the Dublin area and the bus network review. I will make a decision on the application when the assessment has been completed and having regard to the outcome of my deliberations on the reform of the bus market, which I intend to conclude in the coming weeks.
