Cyc-Lok bicycle parking free to use for frontline workers


South Dublin County Council have made their Cyc-Lok bicycle lockers free to use during the COVID-19 restriction phase up to the 5th May. The bicycle lockers are located at Civic Theatre Tallaght and Grange Road Rathfarnham providing secure bicycle parking for long or short-term parking. They also have the advantage of being close to the Luas, Tallaght and the 16, 17, 61 and 75 bus routes from Grange Road. Cyc-Lok’s lockers are completely enclosed and protect bikes and belongings from third-party viewing.

Cyc-Lok is pay-as-you-go parking for your bike and prices start at just €1 for 1 hour, rising to €3 for 12 hours. Each site caters for 12 bicycles at a time and is available 24/7. However, from today and up to 5th May South Dublin County Council is offering free parking for frontline workers. All you need to do is use the following code STAYCOVIDFREE on the Cyc-Lok App, and to remember this offer is on a first come first served basis. To use the service, you need to download the Cyc-Lok app from Google Play or Apple Store, register your details and choose your preferred site and period of use (from 1 to 12 hours). Once your booking is confirmed you will then receive a unique 4-Digit Pin code. Enter this pin code at the unit Tower and press the ‘tick key’ and a locker will open for your bike and belongings. Shut the locker door and once you return just re-enter the 4-Digit Pin Code and press the ‘x-key’ to end your booking. Your locker will then re-open and allow you to collect your bicycle.

Users can also enter and re-enter their locker as many times as they wish during a single booking period, just by entering the unique pin code followed by the ‘tick-key’.

Mayor Vicki Casserly, South Dublin County Council says:
 “I am delighted to announce that South Dublin County Council is offering free use of their bicycle lockers for the duration of the current COVID-19 restriction phase up to 5th May. Our frontline workers are doing a great job in keeping us safe and I am delighted we can play a small part in rewarding them for their efforts. These are challenging times and keeping their mode of transport safe and secure will, hopefully, provide them with one less thing to worry about.”

Remember to abide by the current Social Distancing guidelines and also to use surface wipes and sanitizer to ensure the safest experience for all using the bike lockers.
