DublinBikes charges to double ahead of expansion

3914871753_c510fbe63fDublinBikes’ yearly subscription charge and the three-day ticket price are to double before the expansion, which is underway, is completed.

The following is part of a message posted on DublinBikes.ie yesterday:

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

“From 6th December 2013 a long term hire card (annual subscription) will cost €20 and a 3 Day Ticket will cost €5. There will be no change to usage tariffs, the first 30 minutes of every journey is free.”

As we reported recently: It’s expected there’ll be 20 new DublinBikes stations by Christmas but that leaves 38 stations to be completed next year. See our previous story for more detail and an interactive map of the planned expansion.


  1. Even with the price doubling to 20 EUR, I still believe it to be a good price for what you get. I noticed the building of a few stations already so I am looking forward to the expansion
