324. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will confirm the 2017 budget allocation to the rural transport programme; and the first and full year costs of a 15% increase on a straight line basis for the years 2018 to 2022 in tabular form. [12495/17]

​Budget 2017 provided for a total allocation of €14.4 million to the Rural Transport Programme (RTP).

This is the confirmed RTP allocation for this year, and any percentage increases over whatever timeframe, using whatever basis, may be calculated from it. However, I would caution that whatever calculations the Deputy might use, such figures would only be speculative.  Future funding levels for the programme will be subject to the annual Estimate and Budgetary processes.
