We are Galway based





City Direct is an award winning private public transport company that was established in 1999. This is our 20th year operating a public transport network in Galway City. We provide scheduled bus services on the west side of Galway city. The areas we service include Knocknacarra, Rahoon, Salthill, Cappagh, Ballymoneen, Westside and the City Centre. We currently operate 4 routes within Galway City under licence from the National Transport Authority (NTA).

Our office is currently based on  Lough Atalia Road, Galway City, where we have a depot and garage for our vehicles. We have a total of 20 vehicles in our fleet at the moment. 

All of our vehicles are installed with on-board defibrillators, to ensure a safer environment for our passengers and provide them with the best possible service. We have more than 30 staff members here at City Direct, 18 of which are drivers. We have become the first bus operator in the country to install on-board defibrillators and to have our drivers trained to respond to victims of cardiac arrest, stroke, choking and heart attack.

We are also the service provider of the Park & Ride at NUIG, read more here, and the operator of the University Hospitals Staff Shuttle Bus.
