SDCC launch Bike2Bus initiative after lack of uptake in scheme

By Maurice Garvey

A LACK of uptake in the provision of bike lockers costing €12,000 in Lucan has led South Dublin County Council to launch a promotion to raise awareness of a park-and-ride scheme.

Bike lockers were installed in December at the Lucan Road near Woodies at a cost of €12,372, as part of a National Transport Authority funded N4 cycle scheme.

However, apart from a few enquiries, there has been no uptake on the facilities.

Sinn Féin councillor Danny O’Brien urged the council to engage in more promotion of the facilities, or to relocate the lockers in necessary.

SDCC have this week launched the Bike2Bus initiative, encouraging people to use their bikes as part of their daily commute to the city centre.

The scheme is launched as part of the ongoing N4 cycle scheme in conjunction with BikeLocker.ie.

BikeLocker lockers

Bike locker facilities are located at the Lucan Road /Ballyowen Road junction, providing cyclists with a secure place to park their bicycle while they continue their journey to the city.

Each locker is designed as a self-contained unit, with additional space for users to store their cycling gear and helmet.
Individual lockers are available to rent at €1.83 per week and €95 per annum, plus a refundable deposit of €25.

The bike lockers are purposely located close to a Dublin Bus network serviced by a number of express services.

Anyone interested in renting a bike locker at the Lucan location are requested to send their contact information (name, address and telephone number) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
