I propose to take Questions Nos. 48 and 49 together.

As the Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport.

The questions raised are a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA), in conjunction with bus operators, 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 within ten working days.
