New Divvy pricing offers more options for two-wheeled fun

Today the City of Chicago announced tweaks to the pricing structure for the Divvy bike share system. 

Active Trans is hopeful these changes will encourage more people to try Divvy while also providing existing users with a better experience.

Ultimately, attracting more people to use Divvy will make more resources available for additional stations, expanded access through low-cost membership programs like Divvy for Everyone, and increased outreach and educational programming. 

“Cycling is surging in Chicago in large part because Divvy has it made it easy for experienced and new cyclists alike to travel by bike,” said Ron Burke, Active Trans Executive Director. “Giving people more time between dockings makes Divvy even more convenient. It’s a change many Divvy riders have asked for and will welcome.”

Divvy customers will now be able to take advantage of a $3 single-ride option as well as a new $15 Explorer Pass that will allow users to keep bikes for 24 hours and take rides up to three hours long. 

There’s also exciting news for annual members, with divvy extending the 30-minute ride period by 15 minutes, allowing members to check bikes out for 45 minutes before incurring additional fees.

Finally, the overage fee structure is being simplified into a flat $3 for each additional 30 minutes once the initial time allotment has been reached (30 minutes for non-member users and 45-minutes for annual members).

Active Trans will continue to monitor how the new pricing structure is functioning and will work with our members and supporters to offer feedback and input. Let us know what you think!
