470. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if he has engaged with BusConnects in Cork, given that there is no proposed bus service from the northside of Cork city to Munster Technological University. [62560/21]
BusConnects Cork, the plan to improve bus services throughout Cork city and suburbs is overseen by the National Transport Authority. As a transport matter, it falls within the remit of my colleague the Minister for Transport and I have not engaged with him on this issue.
So far, BusConnects Cork has held two rounds of public consultation for the new bus network for the Cork metropolitan area, the latest of which closed on 10th December 2021. It was open to any member of the public or interested body to submit their feedback on the proposed route and have their say.
