Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
67. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the steps he is taking to increase transport accessibility in public transport; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [62344/21]
I refer the Deputy to her identical Question on 14 December (Ref PQ 61241/21).
I advised the Deputy in that reply that, as Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. It is the National Transport Authority (NTA) that has statutory responsibility for promoting the development of an integrated, accessible public transport network.
I have forwarded your question to the NTA for a direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
