Hey Galway, Cork and Limerick - Get your cycle shorts out

The Coke Zero Bikes will be with you before Christmas.

LAUNCH DATES FOR the new Coca-Cola Zero Bikes in Galway, Limerick and Cork have finally been announced and you’ll all be delighted to hear they’ll be in place by Christmas.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) today confirmed that the Galway bikes will launch on 24 November, followed by Limerick bikes on 8 December and the Cork bikes on 18 December.

The authority is now calling on people in these cities to pre-register so they get get cycling as soon as the bikes are on the street. Customers who pre-register will also get a 50% discount – receiving a special offer of €5 for annual subscription. The special offer extends to the end of 2014.

Gerry Murphy, CEO of the National Transport Authority said the bikes would be an exciting new addition to the three cities “for business and recreational users alike”.

Over the next five years, Coca-Cola Ireland will be investing €3 million in the project, supporting the operation of the bikes.
