If you are working, shopping or just want to enjoy what Galway City has to offer at Christmas time, Park and Ride offers a number of advantages to customers over car travel. The high frequency of buses, competitive pricing €3 return, faster journey time on the bus lanes, will make the journey stress-free and reliable.
