Coke Zero bikes will be on the move by August

| April 24, 2014


200 bikes will be wheeling around Limerick city by August as part of the new public bike scheme initiative announced late last year.

Transport Minister Alan Kelly together with local council officials in Limerick, Cork and Galway will finalise the details of the schemes for each city in the coming days.

Preparatory works, in some cases, have already begun with the remainder of work to begin by the start of May and this will facilitate the scheme to go live by August.

The scheme will see over 700 bikes for hire including 200 for Limerick, 220 for Galway and 315 for Cork.

Estimated to cost €4 million, a capital investment of €3 million from Coca-Cola Ireland over five years will provide most of the funding.
