Transport Minister needs to intervene in bus dispute ahead of Culture Night-
Fianna Fáil’s Transport Spokesperson, Robert Troy TD has said that while he welcomes Minister Heather Humphreys’ intervention in the ongoing bus dispute, he wonders has she spoken to the Minister actually responsible for transport in Ireland, Shane Ross TD.
“Sadly, Minister Humphreys has shown herself to be more clued into the needs of commuters in Dublin than the Transport Minister, Shane Ross” said Troy.
“However, instead of issuing press statements to the media, Minister Humphreys should pick up the phone, call her Ministerial colleague, and demand that he intervene in this dispute.”
“Quite rightly, Minister Humphreys is concerned about the impact of the bus strikes on Culture Night, but where is the concern for the hundreds of thousands of students, workers, pensioners, shoppers who have had their daily routines severely disrupted last week and potentially again this week?” asked Deputy Troy.
