New Indoor Cycle Parking Facilities Available in North City Centre

Dublin City Council, in partnership with two car park providers, have launched two new indoor cycle parking facilities in the North City Centre.  

In total, the new facilities will provide secure, indoor cycle parking for 244 bicycles and four cargo/accessible cycles.  The locations are Jervis Street Car Park (APCOA) and Q-Park The Spire.  Both facilities are bright, spacious and monitored by CCTV security cameras with cycle parking available free of charge.

Dublin City Council has been activity seeking suitable north side locations following the opening and success of the indoor cycle parking facility in Drury Street which caters for 300 bicycles.

Councillor Christy Burke, Chair of the Traffic and Transport SPC, said, “I am delighted with this substantial increase in secure, indoor cycle parking facilities in the city. Availability of secure cycle parking is an influential factor for people considering cycling as a mode of transport. Partnerships and initiatives such as this are essential if we are to meet our Climate Action objectives”.

Speaking at the launch, Brendan O’Brien, Head of Technical Service (Traffic) with Dublin City Council said, “we welcome this significant increase in cycle parking in the city and we will continue to seek opportunities to deliver similar initiatives”.

Neil Cunningham, APCOA’s Managing Director for Ireland, said, “this collaboration with Dublin City Council offers a safe and secure bicycle parking facility for cyclists who are looking to access the inner city for shopping business or leisure purposes. It also provides a wide range of opportunities for the further expansion of APCOA’s Urban Mobility Hubs to deliver sustainable solutions and benefits to our clients, customers who use the car parks and to the local communities.”

Alastair MacDonald, Head of Commercial & Operation at Q-Park Ireland commented, “we are very pleased to be working with Dublin City Council to provide additional bicycle parking in such a busy Dublin city centre location. We know how important it is to have somewhere safe and secure to store bicycles for people returning to the office and journeying into the city. This addition to the facility is the first step in transforming Q-Park car parks into sustainable mobility hubs which will help support the European Union’s Green Deal initiatives.”
