The National Transport Authority (NTA) is a statutory body established by the Minister for Transport on 1 December 2009.
At a national level, the NTA has responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger land transport services. This includes the provision of subventions for bus and rail services by Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus and Irish Rail. The Authority also licences public bus passenger services.

The principal functions of the NTA with respect to the GDA are: strategic planning of transport; development of an integrated, accessible public transport network; promoting cycling and walking; provision of public transport infrastructure generally including light rail, metro and heavy rail; effective management of traffic and transport demand.
