REPLY

Following a Government Decision in January 2012, responsibility for the integration of local and rural transport services, including management of the Rural Transport Programme (RTP), was assigned to the National Transport Authority (NTA) with effect from 1st April 2012. This includes responsibility for implementing the restructuring of the RTP announced by me on 9th July 2013.

I have referred your questions on the restructuring to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
