Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
795. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the status of the BusConnects project; if land has been purchased in respect of the project; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30718/19]
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area, including BusConnects.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
