Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
205. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his plans to tackle the lack of public transport options for school students in the Clonskeagh and Goatstown area of Dublin, particularly schools (details supplied) with regard to the pressure put on public transport services by nearby University College Dublin; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [51373/17]
I share the concerns of local residents, teachers and parents of school children in the area. However, the issues raised are primarily matters for the National Transport Authority (NTA) and I have forwarded the Deputy's questions to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response from the NTA within ten working days.
