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 securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally. The NTA also has national responsibility for integrated local and rural transport, including TFI Local Link services and the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan.

In light of the NTA's responsibilities for planning of TFI Local Link routes and services, I have referred your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
