This dataset comprises of:

  • Repeated observations of numbers of bicycles and empty spaces available at each of the docking stations that comprise Dublin's primary bicycle sharing system (BSS), currently known as Dublinbikes, between late 2010 and 2018. The observations are collected from the system's data feed at generally 2 minute intervals. The oldest data were collected at 10 minute intervals.
  • Summary observations of the numbers of bicycles reported as being available in the system, at generally the same frequency as the individual docking station observations.
  • Locations, operator IDs and names of former and current docking stations in the system.
  • A summary analysis and graph, showing how the numbers of bicycles available has varied with time, based on this data.
