Bleeper Expands in Swords
Bleeper creates new Suburban Hubs across Swords
Bleeper’s latest expansion of our bike sharing service takes in the western parts of Swords. New Bleeper ‘Suburban Hubs’ have been created in Miller's Square, Brackenstown Road and Hilltown.
Bleeper’s expansion in Swords follows on from the successful rollout of the Suburban Hub concept in Crumlin Village, Beaumont and Artane.
Bleeper has worked with Fingal County Council's Active Travel team to identify new areas in Swords where where Bleeper bikes can be parked. These parking zones include schools, shops, public parks and residential areas. Bleeper bikes can be parked at any of the public cycle parking spaces within the new zones.
Bleeper bikes can be hired by anyone who downloads the Bleeper app and creates an account. The app can be used to immediately unlock any Bleeper bike that you see on the street.
Bleeper’s Suburban Hub strategy is based on the popular urban planning concept of the 15-Minute City, which aims to put people’s everyday needs within a 15-minute walk or cycle of where they live.
While we can’t have a Bleeper bike outside every home across Swords, we can aim to give everyone access to a Bleeper bike within a short walk of their home. These new hubs will put a Bleeper bike within 15 minutes of a whole new group of people in Swords, improving access to the centre of the town as well as nearby towns and the city centre.
