Boston Scientific asked by NTA to plan for more bike and bus journeys

Thu, Feb 29, 2024

In a move signalling a significant change of approach from Galway City Council toward large employers, Boston Scientific has been asked to plan for more cyclists and bus users rather than just build extra carparking.

Boston Scientific’s application to build 550 new carparking spaces for its almost 3,000-strong Galway workforce had been questioned by both Galway councils, and now the National Transport Agency too.

In a request for further information after Boston Scientific lodged a planning application last month, local planners have now suggested Boston gives “consideration [to provide] a shuttle bus” to transport employees from regional train and bus stations.
