Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
82. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport further to Parliamentary Question No. 162 of 4 November 2021, the progress made to date on the identification of suitable sites for park and ride in Galway; the details of the initial review being conducted on existing public transport services available along each corridor, as referred to in the National Transport Authority response to the question; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [62327/21]
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 Park and Ride facilities.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, and their previous reply, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for any further updates that may be available. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
