When pulling monthly usage stats for October we noticed an outlier – a user with 495 trips. That’s an average of 16 rides per day! Instead of wondering who this elusive rider was – we called them!

Kerdia doesn’t just commute to and from work on a Divvy – his work is to Divvy. As a bike messenger, he found that after multiple bike thefts it just wasn’t worth it to own a bike anymore and got a Divvy membership instead. Almost 2,000 trips under his belt, for a combined total of roughly 34 days of Divvy riding total – he is at super user status. Kerdia – you may be one of our biggest fans, but we’re one of yours!

We’re adding something new to the Divvy blog! Every month, we’ll be featuring a Divvy employee in our “Employee Spotlight”. We’ll ask this person five questions, which are meant to give our riders a look into who we are, what makes us tick, and possibly provide some laughs.

2015 was a big year for Divvy! With 175 stations added all across Chicago this year, Divvy is now the bike share system with the largest service area in North America and continues to grow. We pioneered the Divvy for Everyone program to grow Divvy access to low-income Chicagoans, and we grew our ridership by 30%.
