    Knowing that there is no direct bus from Knocknacarra/Salthill to Parkmore, does anyone know if there is car sharing or taxi share website ?

    The companies network there will be of more use in terms of finding folks who commute

    Bike to Blackrock and 401 bus might be a combo that works if you're not up for a longer cycle. Or ebike.

    I think an e-bike could be a real alternative for a fraction of the cost of a car. They seem much more mainstream and the technology is mature. For 2 grand you could get a great option which would open up all of Galway to you. A couple more points: there was a study that showed that e-bike riders got more exercise than previously thought. Yet hopefully with the electric assist you wouldn't arrive at the office looking a sweaty mess.

    There are Brite ebikes available around the city now if you wanted to try out an ebike for a few euro. They've stations out as far as Cappagh Stores. Would be expensive to use rentals for that daily commute though.

    Sorry for turning this into a cycling thread but trying to be helpful!

    Just to add - €1500 of that cost can go through the cycle to work scheme now too and save up to nearly 50% on that, depending on your income tax rate. Most workplaces will arrange for the final cost to be spread over the year's payslips too.

    To return to your question OP, I do not believe there is any car-sharing or taxi-sharing website.
