Why you'll love Divvy

Ideal for quick trips.

Divvy is perfect for your short trips (under 30 minutes by bike) around the city. From Union Station to work, from home to the store, from your hotel to a nearby restaurant.

Location location location.

With hundreds of stations around the city, you’ll be able to find Divvy stations almost anywhere you go. Near home, work, school, or shops.

Plays well with other transit.

In other cities, up to 50% of bike share trips are made to get to or from a public transit system. Divvy helps you get between stations and the places you go most often.

Ride together.

Chicago residents can use Divvy with their friends and in-town guests. Buy someone a 24-Hour Pass and show them around the city you love.

Fun and affordable.

Bike share programs give people more choice in the way they get around Chicago. Divvy is not only an affordable alternative, it’s also a fun one.

Sharing means caring.

The word "Divvy" means “to divide and share.” This new bike system connects us all and helps build a stronger local community.

New transit system.

Divvy will be the second largest bike sharing system in the US. We’re building something new and big, and creating local jobs in the process.
