Fare play

- Martina Devlin's article on public transport fare increases (Irish Independent, January 5) fails to take account of the analysis by the National Transport Authority prior to our sanctioning of fare increases.

These reports have been available for download on our website (www.national transport.ie) since early December 2011, and they show that all operators have partially absorbed losses by making significant cost savings in recent years.

To take one example of cost control, Dublin Bus is now making annual costs savings of €52m compared with 2007.
