Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Public Transport Data
1015. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the estimated cost of increasing public transport capacity by 25% and the national public transport total with specific figures for Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus and Iarnród Éireann. [6378/20]
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding relating to public transport. However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operation of public transport.
The issues raised are a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) and I have, therefore, referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
