CHICAGO — Divvy is expanding into parts of Chicago’s South and West Sides.

The bike-sharing program has completed its second major expansion and added 85 new stations.

Riders can now hop on a Divvy in Austin and Garfield Park on the city’s West Side; Burnside, Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, Brighton Park and Englewood on the city’s South Side; and Rogers Park on the city’s Far North Side.

Divvy now has more than 580 stations and 5,800 bikes available.

To celebrate the new stations, Divvy is offering free bike share rides over the weekend, July 16-17th.

To give Divvy a try this weekend, follow two easy steps:

  • Sign up: Visit DivvyBikes.com/delightways and enter your email address. Divvy will email you a gift code that can be used to get a free 24-hour pass.
  • Redeem code: This weekend, go to any Divvy station kiosk and select “Get a Bike.” Swipe your debit/credit card and enter your free ride code when prompted. Riders can also skip lines by downloading “Transit App” on iPhone and Android devices and selecting “Purchase a Pass” from any Divvy station on the app. Note that only trips longer than 30 minutes will incur usage fees.
