Just Eat dublinbikes is celebrating 25 million journeys since the project started in 2009. In order to celebrate this phenomenal achievement, Just Eat decided to treat the local cyclists by hiding 400 Just Eat gift cards worth €25 across the network.
In the last 10 months alone, Dublinbikes saw 3.2 million rides registered, adding to the growing population of cyclist commuters that now make up 14% of all traffic in the Dublin City Centre.
The 25 millionth journey was taken by Richard Millwood from a Just Eat dublinbike on Pearse Street.
“Today is a fantastic milestone for the Just Eat dublinbikes scheme as we celebrate 25 million journeys,” said Lord Mayor of Dublin Nial Ring while celebrating with Richard. “There has been a huge increase in the number of cyclists on the city streets (including me!) since the scheme was launched and there is no doubt it has been an important catalyst for this increase. I would like to congratulate Richard who took the 25 millionth journey and to everyone involved in providing this sustainable form of public transport for the capital.”
There are now 1,600 dublinbikes spanning across 115 stations in Dublin, making the bikes more available now than ever before.
“Just Eat is delighted to be part of today’s landmark celebration for Just Eat dublinbikes,” Just Eat Ireland Managing Director Amanda Roche-Kelly said in a recent press release. “25 million journeys is testament to the popularity of the Just Eat dublinbikes scheme itself and of cycling in general, as a convenient and healthy way to navigate the streets of Dublin.”
