New web-site for City bus users

Cllr Mike Crowe Chairperson of the Transport Committee has confirmed that a dedicated bus web site will be launched in July.
The site will contain information from all the service providers including routes, timetables, maps etc.

“The site will be called and I believe will be a welcome addition to public transport in Galway City. It will build awareness of services and prices. As well as been obviously very helpful to local users it will also help the tourist get around the city.”

“We have been working on this for sometime now. The current information in the public domain is totally unsatisfactory. One day in the recent past we actually surveyed a number of people on buses about the current bus service in Galway and the feedback was largely negative. Things such as outdated maps, abbreviations not been clear and buses simply not turning up all came out in the feedback. I believe by doing this survey and getting information from regular bus users, this method gave us a clear insight in to the problems and challenges that users currently face daily. As a result we will now have much clearer information on the web along with colour illustrated maps that will show exactly where the bus begins, goes to, stops etc”

“We need to overhaul the image of bus transport with modern marketing and this is part of this. I believe that it will also increase passenger numbers and we will develop a Galway Bus Brand Identity. Along with the website we will also be printing new maps and timetables which contain the relevant information for that bus provider which again will be much more user friendly than what we have presently.”
