I propose to take Questions Nos. 584 to 586, inclusive, together.

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport in Ireland.  The issues raised are matters for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in conjunction with Go Ahead Ireland and I have forwarded the Deputy's questions to the NTA for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
