Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
30. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the progress to date of implementing integrated ticketing, including Leap card, at locations outside of Dublin such as Galway; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [46948/13]
Responsibility to develop, procure, implement, operate and maintain the integrated ticketing Leap Card system in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) became a function of the National Transport Authority (NTA) with effect from 30th September 2010. In addition, section 63 of the Dublin Transport Authority Act, 2008 extends the Authority’s remit in relation to integrated ticketing to the rest of the State.
Noting this I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA. Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
