Ceisteanna (235)

Paul Murphy

Ceist:

235. Deputy Paul Murphy asked the Minister for Transport the measures that are being taken to ensure that there is no high-risk level of contracting Covid-19 for passengers using the Luas; the way it will be ensured that there is no overcrowding given that the number of trams has been reduced; the sanitation requirements that must be met; and the way these standards are regulated.

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operation of public transport services.

The issue raised is a matter for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) in conjunction with the Luas operator Transdev, and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to TII for direct reply.  Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
