South Dublin County Council launched Bleeperbike this month, which will see people be able to find nearby bikes in the local area with the Bleeperbike app.

The tech-driven service will allow users to track and even lock their bikes using an app. Users can see the orange Bleeper logo on the app’s map which marks nearby bikes.

The bike’s electronic lock can be release with the QR code on the app. After completing their journey, users can press ‘end journey’ on the app and correctly park their Bleeperbike.

The council hope this scheme will reduce emissions and traffic congestion and plan to introduced the scheme in Lucan and Templeogue as well.

According to plans for the Bleeperbikes, one ride equals 60 minutes of continual usage.

Membership prices are €30 for one month or €75 for 12 months. There are also three pay-as-you-go options.

A top-up of €5 gives you five rides, while a top-up of €25 gives you 27 rides and a top-up of €50 gives you 55 rides.
