Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes annual subscriber numbers reach 50,000

Busiest ever day sees 15k+ journeys
The Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes scheme reached a new milestone today with 50,000 members now currently signed up for annual membership.  October also saw the popular scheme experience its busiest ever day with members taking over 15,000 journeys on 2nd October.
Since the bike scheme launched 5 years ago over 8 million journeys have been made and it is recognised as one of the most successful bike share schemes in the world.   The recent partnership with Coca-Cola Zero and the expansion of the scheme, which has seen the number of bikes on the city streets almost treble to 1,500 and the number of stations more than double to 100, have made the bikes more visible than ever.
Philip Maguire, Assistant Chief Executive with Dublin City Council’s Planning and Development Department says “The success of the Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes scheme continues to exceed all expectations.   October 2nd was the busiest usage day ever with 15,441 journeys made and we are now seeing more and more cyclists in the capital. The availability of the additional bikes and stations has made the city more accessible and it’s great to see so many people using our bikes and their own bikes as a quick and healthy way to get around the city.”
Jon Woods, General Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain & Ireland said “We are delighted that the uptake of subscriptions to the Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes scheme continues to reach new heights. This partnership builds on our goal to encourage active, healthy lifestyles. We are confident that the popularity of Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes will continue, providing the option of a happier and healthier commute across the city.”
Joanne Grant, Managing Director of JCDecaux Ireland added “JCDecaux have had successful commercial partnerships with cities all over the world for the last 50 years. Reaching this milestone of 50,000 subscribers in Dublin demonstrates the overwhelming success of our business model. Membership has increased by 40% from this time last year and we fully expect that the number of members will continue to rise.”
