Divvy Divvy's blue-painted cycles are specially designed, heavy-duty, durable bikes that help riders find their wheels across Chicagoland. There are currently more than 5,800 of them cruising the streets and parked at 580+ solar-powered, touch-screen-equipped stations, which make up this highly popular bike-share program.
Getting in on the action is simple, as Divvy is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Purchasing a 24-hour pass or an annual membership lets you unlock any bike at any Divvy station. After adjusting its seat to fit your height , it's ready to take for a ride—perhaps along the Lakefront Trail, to work, or on an adventure with friends. If your trip lasts less than 30 minutes, you won't pay anything extra. For longer jaunts, you can pay a usage fee or just re-dock your bike at any station and take out another one. (The system has twice as many docking spots as bikes, so you shouldn't have trouble finding a parking space.)
The cheery blue bikes themselves are designed for smooth city riding. An internal gear system means there's no chain to snag pant legs or skirt hems, and a front rack relieves shoulders of purses and bags. Flashing front and rear lights and a bell ensure that other road and path users know that you're rolling through.
