As the Deputy is aware, the National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure in the Greater Dublin Area including, in consultation with the public transport companies, the suitability and where required retrofitting, of public transport vehicles.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in this matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a direct reply regarding the specific issue raised.  Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
