Fault puts brakes on Dublin Bikes
Customers were unable to hire bicycles from Dublin Bikes yesterday because of a technical fault.
A problem with computers at the terminals meant those hoping for a spin through the sun-drenched streets were disappointed.
The problem began after 8am with a fault in the back-up control system. Users were able to return bikes but not to hire them. Technicians resolved the issue just before 1pm.
"We apologise for the problem and hope it didn't inconvenience people too much," said a spokesman for Dublin City Council.
