Bleeper bicycle share launches first “Suburban Hub” in Dublin

Dublin-based stationless bicycle share company Bleeper has launched its first “Suburban Hub” in Crumlin village, in an attempt to extend its current coverage.

Users will now be able to park Bleeper bikes on some of the main streets in Crumlin village.

...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.

Bleeper bikes can be cycled beyond and between parking zones, but journeys can only be ended within the designated Bleeper zones.

The new Crimlin parking zone allows for parking along St Agnes Road between Crumlin Post Office and Crumlin Garda Station. The company said that their bikes can be parked at any of the 40 public bicycle racks within this zone.

Hugh Cooney, CEO of Bleeper, said: “We hope the Crumlin village suburban hub can be a stepping stone towards greater access to bike sharing for people living in suburbs across Dublin.”

“It has been great to get direct feedback from the community in Crumlin and to hear their enthusiasm for bike sharing and for cycling in general.”

“While we can’t have a Bleeper bike outside every home across the entire city, we can aim to give everyone access to a Bleeper bike within a short walk of their home,” said Cooney. “This new hub in Crumlin village will put a Bleeper bike within 15 minutes of everyone living in the wider Crumlin area.”
