A Thousand More Bikes



Work to treble the number of bikes from 500 to 1,500, and more than double the number of stands where they can accessed from 44 to 100, will begin before the end of the year, Dublin City Council has said.

The new bike stations will initially be installed east of the current stations towards the Docklands, and west to Heuston Station.

The provisions of the 56 new stations and 1,000 bikes will be the first phase of a five-year expansion plan to increase the number of bikes to 5,000 and the number of bike stations to approximately 300.
