Check out this quick and easy way to get involved!
Do you ever wish you had another transportation option? Going for a walk or taking a cab are both good options, but sometimes Chicagoans are in a time crunch and are in need of a faster way to get to their destination. This June, Chicagoans are in luck, because The Chicago Department of Transportation is introducing the Divvy bike program. This innovative and accessible program allows cyclists to rent a bike and travel around the city, all without contributing to the air pollution of a cab.
Beginning on June 28th, thousands of bikes will be available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For a small fee, Chicagoans are given access to an all day pass for riding sessions that last up to 30 minutes. When Divvy users have arrived at their destination, they can simply drop the bike off at the nearest Divvy station. Check out the Divvy website for more information on stations and pricing options.
By taking a bike, we can help reduce both the noise as well as air pollution. As any Chicagoan knows, traffic in the city is always a problem; by using a Divvy bike, you can get to your location in a safe and timely manner while reducing the need for public transportation. Just removing one car from the road can have a huge environmental impact. Keep an eye out for the Divvy bikes in your area and think twice next time you jump in to a cab to drive a few blocks!
