...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 nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

York Street is off St Stephen’s Green near the Luas stop, Great Strand Street is between Jervis Street and the quays, and both Grattan Street and Mount Street Lower are located south of the Docklands between Merrion Square and Grand Canal Station.

The additional station follows six other stations which went live in the last 30 days at Clonmel Street (off Harcourt St), Excise Walk (off Mayor Square), and Fenian Street (south of Pearse Starion), Dublin Convention Centre, Deverell Place (off Gardner Street) and the Talbot Street station was extended.

DublinBikes is to have 102 stations and 1,500 bikes by July 2014, when the Docklands and Hueston area expansion is due to be completed. The expansion will include stations as as far as west as Kilmainham Gaol and as far east as the Point Village and the O2.

The system now has nearly 37,000 current yearly subscribers.  Users have rented bikes over 6 million times on Dublin’s relatively small bike share scheme since its launch in September 2009, with over 1.5 million of those rentals cycled this year.
