The Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Peter Kavanagh, officially welcomed the introduction of two new e-bikes this week, writes Amy Rohu.

The bikes are for use by park rangers in Tymon and Corkagh Park. The e-bikes provide the rangers with greater access and visibility of their parks as they can travel where vans cannot, while minimising disruption to park users that the larger vehicles can cause.

Through the implementation of their Climate Change Action Plan 2019-2024 South Dublin County Council is committed to reducing its climate change impact and is working towards a 51% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

In pursuit of this target and funded by the Council’s Climate Innovation Fund, the e-bikes aim to help to transition the transport requirements of the park rangers away from traditional methods such as greenhouse gas emitting diesel or petrol-powered vans, while assisting them in efficiently covering the extensive acreage of South Dublin parks.
