Divvy Expands Bike-Sharing Stations
According to Jon Hilkevitch at the Chicago Tribune, the bike share service Divvy, based in Chicago, will be expanding by a total of 87 square miles in its service area, now covering 31 wards. The expansion, completed by Spring 2015, will include cover 13 new wards lying on the peripheries of the current system.
This expansion was originally planned for this year, but due to Bixi's bankruptcy (the equipment supplier for a Divvy contractor), the project was delayed. However, now "Alta is in the final stages of vetting multiple supplier options, all of whom have committed to spring delivery time frames,'' said CDOT spokesman Pete Scales.
