: the 40 rent-a-bike depots around Dublin, from the Mater to the Grand Canal. coverage outside the city centre is pretty weak :(

I think it would be more accurate to say ‘there is no coverage outside the city centre’. I believe the way it works out in practice is that each depot has to be within 300m of another depot. You can’t just spread ’em out, otherwise it doesn’t work. You also obviously need enough bikes to cover the number of depots you have.
if you look at http://www.en.velib.paris.fr/trouver_une_station , you can see the coverage there is much wider — and there appear to be some outliers further than 300m apart, e.g. the 3 near Suresnes… I can’t help feeling Dublin got a half-assed job (as usual).
