DublinBikes: 20 new stations by Christmas

dublinbikesUp to 20 of the 58 planned extra DublinBikes stations are “due to be constructed by Christmas”.

The council has previously said that new stations will be added to the system one-by-one as work on each of the new stations, and one station being expanded, is finalised.

The expansion includes 950 new bikes and around 2,000 extra parking stands at the 58 planned stations. When the expansion is expected to be completed next summer the system should have 1,500 bikes and 102 stations with around 3,000 stands.

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of February, 210 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.3% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
