I thought about getting a bicycle in Dublin to get around, but had not done so in the first few weeks that I moved.
I got to know about Dublin Bikes – the public bike transportation system, and now I get everywhere I need to go (within the city) virtually for free!
- I registered online on Dublin Bikes and got a confirmation e-mail.
- Activated my account on one of the bike stations with a Leap Card (commuter card) and a PIN code.
- Picked a bike, and it’s free if I return it within 30 mins to any station.
The annual subscription for this has been only 20EUR. I’ve saved tons of money by renting the bikes so far than I would on Uber, bus, and train rides.
I imagine that more cities could start doing this – but not entirely sure how one would survive safely on the hectic Singapore roads back home.
