Chicago became even more bicycle friendly in offering locals and visitors a unique way to explore the city with a citywide bike-sharing program. This environmentally-friendly mode of transportation debuted in Summer 2013 and is a fun, low-cost and convenient way to see Chicago. Rent a bike and head out on your own sightseeing tour of Chicago!
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) launched the city's bike share system — Divvy — with the goal of expanding to 4,700 bikes at 470 neighborhood locations.
Divvy gives Chicagoans and visitors the option of renting a bike for point-to-point trips and provides a simple transit option that's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Users simply pick up a bike from a self-service docking station, which will be located near public transit, employment centers, shopping districts, schools and other highly trafficked areas, and return it to a station near their destination.
Users will be able to purchase a yearly membership for $75 or $9.95 daily passes, which will allow for unlimited trips up to 30 minutes each.
