ONE million journeys have been made on Cork city’s popular Coca Cola Zero Bikes. 

The figure was revealed ahead of European Mobility Week and staff in the Roads and Transportation Department will reveal within weeks who the cyclist is that made the 1,000,000th journey.

The Cork Public Bike Scheme is sponsored by Coca Cola and is a self service bike rental service with 31 stations located throughout the city. 

A total of 330 bikes are located from Kent Train Station to UCC with stations at the Bus Station, City Hall, South Mall, St Patricks St, Emmet Place, North Main St, Grattan St, Washington St and Gaol Walk. 

The busiest station in the city is at Fitzgerald’s Park.

Since the scheme was launched at the end of 2014 the number of subscribers has grown to almost 12,000. 

At the end of its first year it had 1,369 subscribers, but by June of this year, there were 11,951 yearly subscribers.
