Galway Cycle Bus wins runner-up Climate & Community award

NEWS IN BRIEF: The Galway Cycle Bus has won runner-up for Climate & Community Initiatives at the Pride of Place awards.

A Cycle Bus helps children get safely to school where the infrastructure does not allow for them to cycle in safely and comfort normally. There’s now a number of Cycle Buses set up around the country.

The group said: “Delighted to have won runner-up for Climate & Community Initiatives at the Pride of Place awards. Here’s a little video of how we work! We’ve also created a planning document for any other community who would like to create their own Cycle Bus. Find it at: galwaycyclebus.weebly.com.”
