Bike Sharing

Fingal County Council is working to make Active Travel a safe, accessible and easy choice for everyone. As part of this mission we operate 2 bike sharing schemes for the County.

You don't need to own a bike to get cycling - you can sign up for Bleeper or Tier and unlock a bike or e-bike to use whenever you need one.

These bikes are ideal for daily trips to work, training or the shops as well as leisure use. So whether you're thinking about a cycle to the seaside or a pedal to the park you should sign up today and get pedalling!
