Bartra Richard Barrett, supported Bleeperbike, bike-sharing scheme, which was run in the Dublin city Council last year.

Bleeperbike allows users to rent bikes that you can fix on any bike in the city.

It’s like circuit Board of the Dublin bikes, but without a specific docking station.

Founder and CEO Hugh Cooney said he was going to use the €75,000 invested by Mr. Barrett to finish the R & d program for the next version of your bike.

Current bikes are standard bicycles, but Mr. Cooney plans to introduce the so-called e-bike that has an electric motor to help boost power.

Mr. Barrett was principal properties firm Treasury bonds along with the well-known developer johnny Ronan.

Mr. Cooney worked in this business in China and was known Mr. Barrett from that time.

Bleeperbike had planned to launch the scheme last year, but encountered problems with Dublin city Council, who said he wanted to put regulations on the regulation of the first scheme.

The bikes then were withdrawn from the streets, and after regulations were put into effect Bleeperbike was granted a license to operate, along with another firm, URBO.

Bleeperbike gets its name from the machine is attached, making the “beep” when the bikes are locked and unlocked from the bike racks.

Mr. Cooney got the idea, noting stationless bike-sharing at the time in China.

“Focus on doing a good job in Dublin, so we launch in Blanchardstown this month, Fingal County Council, and we have pilots and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown and South Dublin as well,” said Mr Cooney.

“There is a fair of logistics and operational tasks to get right, so we’re not too far outside Dublin, until we get that all is well.

“Then we’ll see what opportunities at this time”, he added.
