Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
219. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the number of times a contracted operator (details supplied) of the 17A and 220 bus routes has received financial penalties from the National Transport Authority for non-performance of contract, disaggregated by description of the particular category of non-performance associated in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5547/22]
As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport; however, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport.
The issue raised is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) in conjunction with the individual 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.
