Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
64. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his plans to make any of the current bus routes in Galway city run on a 24-hour basis as has been done with a number of Dublin Bus routes; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [49155/21]
As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. However, I am not involved in the operations of public transport.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally and for the scheduling of these services in conjunction with the relevant transport operators.
I have, therefore, forwarded 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.
