“The cars in the foreground are parked up against the back of the bikes. The cars in the background are parked up against empty stands for the bikes.”
The above photo — even if a temporary issue and due to be fixed — illustrates the haphazard roll-out of Coke-Zero Bikeshare.ie bicycles in Galway. The area around the bike station could have easily been secured with traffic cones.
Despite long delays before the system was partly launched three weeks ago the network is still not fully up and running. One key station was removed before launch at the wish of councillors, and it’s unclear if all the stations due to live ever will.
