Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
146. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the estimated investment to date in the Dublin BusConnects initiative; the estimated final cost; and the expected impact when it is fully in place in terms of extra passengers, extra peak hour share, extra buses in the system, and reduced emissions from city transport. [57182/22]
As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure, including BusConnects Dublin.
Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have referred the Deputy's question to the NTA for a direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
