Ceisteanna (605)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh

Ceist:

605. Deputy Aengus Ó Snodaigh asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the number of drivers employed by Bus Éireann who retired from the company in each of the years 2016 to 2018 and to date in 2019, by county, in tabular form; the number of drivers hired as their direct replacements; his views on concerns that the failure to replace retired Bus Éireann drivers responsible for driving school routes has resulted in a reduced capacity that has had to be filled by private bus operators; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
