5,000 Dublin Bikes by 2018

The number of Dublin Bikes on the city streets is set to increase by 1,000% over the next 4 years, if plans announced this week come to fruition.

At the moment, the Dublin Bikes scheme is undergoing its ‘phase three’ expansion, which brings the number of bikes from its current level to 1,500 by June, with 102 stations.

Lord Mayor Oisin Quinn said the popularity of the scheme will see it increase to 5,000 bikes across the city and into the suburbs by 2018 at the latest.
