Dubliners & visitors to the city like to get on their bikes.

Coca-Cola Zero dublinbikes had 2,083,821 journeys between January and June of this year, and 15,495,774 journeys in total since the scheme launched in 2009.

Anne Graham, CEO of the NTA, said: "It all comes back to giving people what they want – the appetite is certainly there among the public for schemes which make it easy for people to go about their day by enhancing the transport options for citizens and visitors alike".

However, similar schemes in other cities have not been as successful with 770 riders per day in Cork, 90 in Limerick and only 40 per day on the Galway scheme.

But the Dublin service, operated by Dublin City Council and JCDecaux is one of the most successful bike schemes in the world, with almost 62,000 subscribers and 3,667 more registrations in the first half of this year.
