Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
49. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if it is planned to devolve decisions in relation to the siting of bus shelters and other minor works from the NTA to the local authorities; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17850/21]
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 question to the NTA who will provide an explanation of the siting process to the Deputy directly. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
