As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally. It also has national responsibility for integrated local and rural transport, including management of the Rural Transport Programme which now operates under the Local Link brand. Noting this I have forward the Deputy's Question to the NTA for direct reply.

The question of rates of pay in Bus Éireann is a matter for the company and I have also forward the Deputy's Question to the company for direct reply

Please advise my private office if you do not receive responses within ten working days.

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