Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes celebrates 10 million journeys

Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes celebrates 10 million journeys

(23/04/2015)

Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes marked a milestone today with the announcement that over 10 million journeys have now been taken on the public hire bike scheme.

Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Paschal Donohoe TD met today with Mairéad Roche who took the 10 millionth Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes journey at Inchicore station by Kilmainham Gaol.

He said: “The attraction of the Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes scheme is evident in the diversity of people that can be seen using them across the city; from students to business people, the bikes offer a convenient and cost effective way of getting around. Dublin is perfectly suited to cycling as a means of transportation and I was delighted last week to see that the NTA’s Canal Cordon report outlined that cycling has continued its steady trend of increasing usage, with the number of cycling trips crossing the Cordon exceeding 10,000 for the first time. This is more than double that of 2006”.

Figures from the 2014 Canal Cordon Count, which was jointly published by the NTA and Dublin City Council last week, show that the number of people commuting to the city by bike increased by approximately 114% between 2006 and 2014. There was an increase of around 14% last year alone.

Attending the announcement of the 10 millionth journey this morning were:

  • Paschal Donohoe TD - Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport
  • Owen Keegan - Dublin City Council Chief Executive
  • Michael Aherne - Head of the National Transport Authority’s Transport Development Division
  • Jennifer Heaphy - Head of Public Affairs and Communications, Coca-Cola Ireland
  • Joanne Grant - Managing Director, JCDecaux Ireland
  • Mairéad Roche – Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes user who took the 10 millionth journey

Owen Keegan said: “Passing 10 million journeys in little over five years is an amazing achievement and shows what an excellent decision it was to provide the service originally and to then expand it. I would like to congratulate everybody involved, especially the scheme’s members who have done so much to make it the success story it has become.”

Jennifer Heaphy, Head of Public Affairs and Communications for Coca-Cola Ireland presented Mairéad Roche with a gift of a cycling holiday to France to mark the milestone and said: “We are proud to have supported the expansion of the scheme. Since we started supporting the scheme last June, three million journeys have been taken on the bikes and we are delighted to be playing a part in its continued success.

“Our partnership with dublinbikes builds on our commitment to encourage active healthy lifestyles and through our investments in the regional bike schemes in Galway, Limerick and Cork, and more recently in Belfast, we are working to help create a culture of cycling across the island of Ireland.”

Joanne Grant Managing Director of JCDecaux Ireland commented that “Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes has been a phenomenal success. Reaching 10 million journeys is a fantastic milestone for everyone involved in the scheme and is testament to how Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes is so well integrated into the fabric of Dublin City. JCDecaux is proud to have played our part in this and we look forward to continued success working with Dublin City Council and Coca-Cola Ireland delivering this world class bike share rental scheme”.
