— Busiest day was October 16 with 16,574 trips.
— Herbert Place is the busiest station.
Dublin residents and visitors have rented bicycles on the city’s main bicycle share system, DublinBikes, over 25 million times since the system launched in September 2009 — with 3,273,310 trips in the last 10 months alone.
The scheme is run by JCDecaux on behalf of Dublin City Council and sponsored by Just Eat. It includes around 1,600 bicycles and 115 docking stations.
The city council said to mark this “major milestone” that DublinBike users are “invited to unwrap the gift of sustainable public transport and uncover one of 400 Just Eat gift cards worth €25 each, hidden across the network” — amounting to over €10,000 worth of gift cards.
The city council said that cycling makes up over 14% of all traffic in the City Centre.
Just Eat Ireland Managing Director Amanda Roche-Kelly said: “Just Eat is delighted to be part of today’s landmark celebration for Just Eat dublinbikes. 25 million journeys is testament to the popularity of the Just Eat dublinbikes scheme itself and of cycling in general, as a convenient and healthy way to navigate the streets of Dublin.”
“By adding 15 new stations and 100 new bikes to the network over the past 8 months, the scheme has really transformed the infrastructure of sustainable transport in the capital and Just Eat is so proud to be part of its success.”
