612. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will provide by date and intended purpose each grant awarded to fund the dublinbikes scheme since its inception; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [28122/14]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 611 and 612 together.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the development and implementation of infrastructure projects in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA), including the Dublin Bikes Scheme. My Department has provided capital funding to the NTA to assist with the expansion of this scheme.
In light of the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the Authority for a direct response. Please advise my private office if you don't receive a reply within 10 working days.
