Dublin’s Bike Sharing System Might Be “the Most Successful in the World”

Dublin’s Bike Sharing System Might Be “the Most Successful in the World”

Dublin’s bike sharing program, which launched back in September, has been a smashing success (as I imagine the Irish might say). The Dublin City Council is claiming it is “the most successful in the world by any measure.” From the Global Post: Despite predictions that the 450 specially-made bikes, available from 40 stations around the city, would quickly be stolen or tossed in the River Liffey by vandals, only two have been pilfered in the first six months of operation. These were quickly recovered, and none have been vandalized, according to council spokesman Paul Finan.
