Dublin bikes are a winner

THE DUBLIN Bike Scheme has been a tremendous success. Just three years after it launched the initiative is now set to treble in size, from 500 to 1,500 bikes.

The new extension will expand the scheme as far north as DCU, south to UCD, west to Inchicore and east to Sandymount. The scheme already has 70,000 subscribers, making it one of Europe's most successful.
