Equinox Cycle Parking

#EquinoxCycleParking

Capel Street

Status: Archived

Current Status: Closed and Archived

Project Stage(s): Concept
(What are these different stages?)

Live Trial Location(s): Removed
(Why are Beta Projects removed?)

 

CHALLENGE:

There's not enough bicycle parking in Dublin. 

PROPOSITION: 

Should Dublin temporarily increase the amount of bicycle parking during the Summer half of the year? 

DESCRIPTION:

1 car-shaped bicycle hangar was placed onto Capel Street for a period of 4 weeks.

OUTCOMES:

This trial cost Dublin City Council €0. (We already owned the car-shaped bicycle parking rack.)

The parking was not used as much as expected (eg never at capacity).

DECISION:

Pivot.  With Dublin's climate, there wasn't enough of a difference in cycling levels to warrant seasonal bicycle parking, but rather a permanent increase in bicycle parking.

NEXT STEPS:

Through a new Beta Project, explore the use of easily removeable bicycle parking (such as the above rack) to look at the expansion of additional bicycle parking around the city.
