The Cycle-to-Work scheme was launched by the Government in 2009 to encourage the use of bicycles to travel to and from work. The scheme allows for a civil or public service employer to incur the expense of providing an officer with a bicycle and bicycle safety equipment up to a limit of €1,000, without the officer being liable for benefit-in-kind taxation. The tax exemption can only be availed of once in any five year period. The scheme is managed by the Department of Finance. The NPS manages the supplier listing only. Officers wishing to use the scheme should contact their Personnel Officers.
