Public Transport Minister, Alan Kelly has today announced details of new bike-share schemes for the cities of Cork, Limerick and Galway.
The schemes, which will be the first of their kind in the cities, will allow potential cyclists to use bikes for either free or at a low cost and take/leave them at various docking stations throughout the cities. The roll out of the schemes is being made possible following an agreement by Coca-Cola Ireland to partner with the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport, the NTA and the Cities of Cork, Galway and Limerick on this important initiative which will be operational in July 2014.
The schemes will be carried out by the National Transport Authority (NTA) in partnership with Coca-Cola Ireland and will be known as ‘Coke Zero Bikes’.
