Minister for transport Paschal Donohoe has confirmed today that eight new stations will be added to Galway’s bicycle share scheme.
In a speech he said: “The NTA and Galway City Council have now agreed on the construction of eight additional stations, demonstrating the success of the scheme so far.”
He added: “Galway Bike Scheme was launched in November 2014. To date, 15 stations have been constructed and at the end of July 2015, the Scheme had 2,151 members and as many as 12,840 trips have been made using the scheme in Galway.”
When we requested details of the expansion, a spokesman for the National Transport Authority (NTA) said it “is examining additional stations in Galway; however, we are not yet at a stage where we can provide any details.”
