We'll be seeing more bikes in the capital soon as a new stationless bike scheme was launched in Dublin today. 

As first reported by the Journal.ie, Dublin City Council has granted licenses to two operators to provide bikes in the city. 

Unlike DublinBikes, the new scheme will not have rental locations. Instead an app will be used to unlock the bikes to start the rental period and it will only end when the bikes are locked back on to a Sheffield bike stand. 

These stands can already be seen around the city and are more widespread than the DublinBikes rental points.

Dublin City Council has said that there will be “full interoperability between the two schemes” run by operators Urbo and Bleeperbikes.

They also added that the scheme will eventually be expanded to outer suburban areas. 

Now all you have to do is brave the cycling lanes.
