An expansion of Dublin’s public bicycle sharing system, DublinBikes, seems to be on tract to be finished by July as expected. In recent days, new stations have opened in Dublin 8 and Dublin 7.

The four new stations are on: John Street West, Oliver Bond Street, Eccles Street East and Blackhall Place.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'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...

John Street West is off Thomas Street; nearby is another staion on the corner of Oliver Bond Street and Bridgefoot Street;  the Blackhall Place station is just south of Stoneybatter; and the Eccles Street East is beside the Mater Private Hospital.

The stations at Blackhall Place and Oliver Bond Street represent the most western locations to go live so-far on the northside and southside, respectively.

Stations at locations such as Heuston and Jervis Street have been installed but are awaiting activation.
