Quite a few people that hire bikes for the greenway, don’t cycle all that much or may not have even been on a bike in years. To ease the strain, Greenway Bicycle Hire introduced “Shuttle Services”, so you can cycle as little or as much as you like.
When you hire from us, you have a few options available to you…
We are conveniently based in Newport and we include our shuttle services with every hire. You will get a rebate at the end of your hire provided you don’t confirm or use the shuttle service, meaning, you only pay for the service if you use it or confirm your seat on it. The greenway between Newport and Achill has proven as the most popular section of the Great Western Greenway and we run our shuttle services back and forth so you can cycle as little or as much as you like. The rate for Adults is €25 for bike and shuttle service and €15 per child. We provide an evening economical shuttle that departs Achill at 5pm and adults receive €5 rebate on your shuttle ticket if you choose this service when you arrive back at the shop in Newport in the evening. All other shuttle services are priced at €25 including the bike for adults and the one low cost rate of €15 for kids.
If you hire in Newport, and cycle back to Newport…
When you hire your bikes in Newport, you will be charged €25 for an Adult Hybrid bike and a shuttle ticket and €15 for a childs bike and shuttle ticket. We provide a day that remains as flexible as possible to our customers and having quite a lot of experience on the Great Western Greenway, we have found that some people, and a lot of people like to have the option to change their minds. If you choose not to avail of our shuttle services, you simply bring your bike back to the shop in Newport, and with your tickets you can reclaim €10 on adult tickets and €5 on children’s tickets provided you haven’t used or confirmed the shuttle service.
