The government is being called on to pump more money into the Dublin Bikes scheme.
Work is about to begin on installing fifteen new stations, but a lack of funding means the project is years behind.
Chair of the City Council’s Transport Committee, Ciaran Cuffe, says branding the bikes only pays for so much.
"It is only a small fraction of the overall funding that’s needed to maintain it and to expand it," said Mr Cuffe.
"So ultimately - a bit like motorways, a bit like trams - you need the money from central government to make it happen.
"That’s where there simply hasn’t been enough cash to expend the scheme as quickly as we would like."
