Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Transport Authority
288. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport when he will be in the position to ensure the provision of promised bus stops and bus shelters throughout County Kildare arising from the routes created through Local Link services and other scheduled services including the Blanchardstown and Naas routes; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44633/20]
As Minister for Transport, 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, including the provision of bus stops and shelters.
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.
