MEANS OF TRANSPORT IN DUBLIN: GET TO KNOW DUBLIN BIKES
Dublin is a flat city in most of its parts, with several miles of cycle lane, and for this reason, the city offers a rather interesting transport system: Dublin Bikes.
The project was developed with the purpose of making the locomotion easier, offering a more interesting, cheap and accessible option to all the residents and visitors of Dublin. The initiative contributes to the reduction of cars on the streets and also the emission of pollutants in the air.
Dublin Bikes stations are distributed in the center of the city, with approximately 300 meters distance between them, facilitating both the rent and delivery of these bikes. See the updated stations map by clicking here.

All stations have a terminal that allows the user to consult their personal account, in addition to seeing the availability of bicycles and stands in other stations, check the map of the station, and also some other information.
The annual card is an excellent choice for people who use their bike constantly to get around to university or work. The registration in this mode costs € 25 per year, which can be paid by credit or debit card. You can also join an online Leap Card.
If the payment is by debit and the user must send an updated proof of address and authorize the billing operation. If the user is under 18 years of age, parental consent is also required.
3 DAY TICKET
You can purchase a 3-day ticket with a credit card in enabled terminals for a cost of € 5 at several stations (http://www.dublinbikes.ie/Stations/View-stations/Just-Eat-dublinbikes- station- list). The user must be in possession of this ticket, which contains a necessary identification to remove and return the bicycle. Once picked up at one of the stations, time begins to count.
The first 30 minutes of use are free. Subsequently, a service fee, proportional to the time of use of the bicycle, starts to apply. In order to better understand the charge and inform yourself about the updated values, access the link by clicking here.
The bikes are of good quality and fit the fickle weather of Dublin, with mud and water protectors, as well as safety equipment such as reflectors and safety locks.
It’s also possible to consult the annual user’s personal account of the service, the maps and details about the stations, as well as bicycles available, in the AllBikesNow application.
