Blue bikes for University

“Tired” of walking? Chicago’s new bike share program, Divvy, now has five stations in Hyde Park, most notably next to the campus bookstore on East 58th Street and South Ellis Avenue, Kimbark Plaza on East 53rd Street and South Kimbark Avenue, and Promontory Point on South 55th Street and East Lake Shore Drive. Additional stations are planned for International House on East 59th Street and South Dorchester Avenue as well as near Medici and Noodles, Etc. on East 57th Street and South Kenwood Avenue.

Day passes are available for $7 and annual memberships for $75 dollars for credit or debit purchase at any Divvy station kiosk. Paying this fee allows members to make unlimited trips between any stations. However, because Divvy is intended for quick commutes from place to place, a bike must be returned within 30 minutes to avoid overtime fees, which range from $1.50 to $8 every half hour.
