To ask the Minister for Regional Development whether he will include specifications for bicycle storage when procuring for buses.

Translink is aware of the need to provide space for bicycles on its vehicles. I have asked it to explore these options going forward taking account of value for money, safety and impact on its overall passenger base. Translink plans will be subject to economic appraisal and this is one of a number of factors which will be considered.
