I propose to take Questions Nos. 66 and 103 together.

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

The issues raised are matters for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in conjunction with the relevant bus operators.  Therefore, 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.
