I welcome the fact that the buses are green. I thought the NTA was doing that to promote Limerick, but it is an added benefit for us anyway.

I will ask a couple of questions of Ms Graham and Mr. Creegan first before moving on to Mr. Walsh and Mr. O'Neill. On a general note, it is great that we are promoting buses, but has a national policy on providing bus shelters at every significant bus stop been considered? Many rural villages do not have bus shelters. In Limerick, people approach us looking for bus shelters. We then get on to the NTA, which works with the local authority on agreeing bus shelters. A national policy would send out a strong signal that people using bus services would have shelters, meaning they would not get wet and they would be safe and secure there.
