As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. My Department has allocated €287m in public service obligation (PSO) funding to the National Transport Authority for 2019. It is the NTA's statutory responsibility to allocate this funding to the transport operators. I have, therefore, forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive responses within ten working days.
