A similar scheme to Dublin Bikes that was shut down in the City Centre is being rolled out in the suburbs. South Dublin County Council says it's allowing Bleeperbike to operate in Clondalkin, Tallaght, and Rathfarnham on a trial basis.
They will work by using an app, which will allow you to scan a bike's QR code once you register and find the nearest BleeperBike.
To end the journey, simply park at a designated parking rack, lock and press end journey - although the company warns users to "make sure you park legally".
If the bike rental scheme is a success, it'll be brought to other areas in Lucan and Templeogue. It's understood the scheme is being welcomed in South Dublin as the area is not already serviced by Dublin Bikes.Earlier this year, Dublin City Council said the launch of Bleeperbike in the city centre was "premature, and the idea was "in direct conflict with the approach agreed" at its Transport meeting in May.
It was decided that Bye-Laws would be drawn up to proactively engage "with all potential stationless bike share operators with a view to giving an equal opportunity to each" of them.
