Live Trial Location(s): Removed

(What are the Project Stages?)
(Why are trials removed?)

DESCRIPTION:

Should residents be able to apply to park their bicycles in an onstreet, shared, bicycle hangar near their home? (You can read the original, longer, Beta Project description over here on the old DCC Beta website.)

A callout was made on social media for interested people who would like to trial a bike hangar near their home, and 6 residents from 4 households took part in this trial of 1 residential bicycle hangar. 

The location was chosen due to the proximity of the relevant Dublin City Council staff, as a low-trafficked street, and also as it does not tend to reach full occupancy of its car parking provision.

The hangar was from the company Cyclehoop, and represents the general concept of a hangar.

'Tours’ of the hangar were offered to the public (via social media) during lunchtimes and evenings on 3 occasions.

The bicycle hangar was removed at the trial end, after 5 months.

OUTCOMES:

This trial cost €4,800 (supply of hangar and delivery from UK, plus the installation and the removal of the hangar post-trial.)

Report Card:  Rain Box Planters, Iteration 1

DECISION:

Persevere. 

(What are the possible project outcomes?)

NEXT STEPS:
