Ceisteanna (570)

Tony McLoughlin

Ceist:

570. Deputy Tony McLoughlin asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will direct the NTA to investigate if the services and stops on the S1 and S2 Bus Éireann public service routes in Sligo town can be reviewed to allow more frequent stops in the Treacy Avenue area of the town in view of the ageing population of the homeowners in the area (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter.

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) is the statutory body with responsibility for overseeing the delivery of bus services by Bus Éireann and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
