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:

“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
