Ceisteanna (1454)

Imelda Munster


1454. Deputy Imelda Munster asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the rationale for charging children over 16 years of age adult fares on public transport in some parts of the State while others in the greater Dublin area are charged a child's fare between 16 and 18 years of age for bus services; his plans to introduce a State-wide policy whereby all 16 to 18 year olds are charged a child's rate on public transport; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1728/18]

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for regulating fares charged by public transport operators. I have therefore forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if the Deputy does not receive a response within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A.
