Bicycles Helping Ireland’s Capital To Go Green
The city of Dublin is encouraging cycling with free bike schemes and bike to work programs.
The city council of Dublin, Ireland launched a free bicycle scheme last year in which 450 specially-made bikes were made available from 40 stations around the city. The bicycle needs a credit card to use it, and is free for the first half an hour costing 6.50 Euros for four hours. The city council claims that the scheme is a runaway success with over 500,000 trips made since its inception.
