As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.

Under the Dublin Transport Authority Act 2008, the National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for promoting the development of an integrated, accessible public transport network. The NTA also has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally. 

In light of the NTA's responsibilities for the purchase of new buses for the Public Service Obligation (PSO) fleets I have forwarded your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
