Dublinbikes keeps doubling riders
Another one million journeys have been made on Dublin's cycle hire scheme - doubling the total in less than a year.
In all two million journeys have been taken on dublinbikes since the scheme was launched in September 2009.
The scheme hit the one million rides mark in August 2010, but has managed to double that in just nine months.
The two million mark was reached at 2.10pm last Thursday with a seven-minute journey from Parnell Square North to Smithfield North.
Dublin’s lord mayor, Gerry Breen, said: “It took 11 months to reach one million journeys and now, just nine months later, we have reached the two million mark.
“The project has re-introduced the bicycle as a form of transport in the city and has encouraged both Dubliners and visitors to get more active while supporting a green initiative.”
