About us

The National Transport Authority is a statutory non-commercial body, which operates under the aegis of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.

It was established in 2009 on the foot of the Dublin Transport Authority Act 2008, having originally been developed to be a transport authority for the Greater Dublin Area (GDA). It was later renamed the National Transport Authority in the Public Transport Regulation Act 2009.

The role of the NTA was extended in April 2010, under Statutory Instrument 139, to include the provision of integrated information schemes for public transport in the cities and counties of Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford, and the neighboring areas of those counties

On January 1 2011, the NTA assumed responsibility for the regulation of the small public service vehicle sector (SPSV). The Public Transport Regulation Act 2009 included provisions to enable this.

The NTA now regulates the SPSV sector in accordance with the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act (2003).

At its core, the NTA strives to develop and implement key strategies that will ultimately provide high quality, accessible, sustainable transport connecting people in communities across Ireland.
