Coca-Cola Ireland is a proud sponsor of one of the most successful public bike sharing schemes in the world.
We want to get the nation pedalling with
Building on our commitment to encourage physical activity in Ireland, we partnered with JCDecaux and Dublin City Council in June 2014 to support the expansion of the popular dublinbikes scheme. We are very proud that our investment enabled the scheme to double the number of docking stations and treble the number of bikes.
The scheme which has 1,500 bikes and 100 docking stations, has more than 50,000 cyclists signed up for annual membership, making it one of the most successful bike share schemes in the world.
A significant milestone was celebrated recently with the announcement that 10 million journeys have been taken on the bikes since launching in 2009, and three million of those journeys were taken in the last year, since the scheme expanded thanks to our investment.
"Dublin city has had a world-class public bike hire scheme since 2009. The scheme has exceeded all expectations and over eight million journeys have been taken so far. Dublin City Council always envisaged that commercial partnership would play an important part in funding the scheme’s expansion and in Coca Cola Ireland, dublinbikes has found a fitting partner." Christy Burke, Dublin’s Lord Mayor
