Ebike pricing

Zone 1 ebike fee breakdown

Zone 1 (in yellow on the map) is bounded by Maple and Pershing Aves on the north-south axis, the lakeshore to the east, and Western, Fowler, and Prospect Aves to the west.

  • In Zone 1, per-minute pricing will apply from the start of your ebike ride. If you end your ride outside a Divvy station or e-station in this zone, you’ll be charged an out-of-station parking fee.

Zone 2 ebike fee breakdown

Zone 2 (in blue on the map) covers the following areas:

  • The southern portion is bounded by 138th St and Pershing Ave on the north-south axis, the lakeshore and State Line Rd to the east, and Western Ave to the west (with a small extension to Cicero Ave).

  • The western portion is bounded by Howard and Pershing Aves on the north-south axis and Western Ave to the east.

If you start or end your ebike ride in Zone 2, it will include 30 or 45 minutes (depending on membership status) at no additional cost before per-minute pricing kicks in. If you end your ride outside a Divvy station or e-station in this zone, the out-of-station parking fee will be waived to account for the lower density of stations.

Ebike parking

To improve availability and keep our streets neat, we’re installing ebike-only e-stations throughout our service area. Use the ebike’s locking cable to secure it at an e-station (Classic bikes can’t be docked here). Ebike parking is free at Divvy stations and e-stations. For an extra $2, you may also lock to a public bike rack, signpost, light pole, or retired parking meter within the service area.

Ebike parking violations

Parking violations — including locking the ebike to itself, private property, trees, or any other structures as well as blocking pathways, sidewalks, or ramps — incur a $25 fee. You’ll be charged a $25 fee for parking your ebike outside of the service area.

$5 ebike credit promotion

For a limited time, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will offer Divvy members a $5 credit towards up to 30 minutes of ebike riding or other usage fees. This credit will automatically be applied to Chicago residents' accounts and expires after 30 days. New members who sign up before December 31, 2020 will also receive the same credit.
