Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
17. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the status of a bus service for an area (details supplied); the date on which it will be back in operation; and the frequency of the service. [46077/22]
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 National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally and is responsible for the licensing of public bus passenger services under the provisions of the Public Transport Regulation Act 2009. Therefore, I have forwarded the Deputy's question in relation to the cancellation of a service to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
