Malcolm X College Adds Divvy Station, One of Over 30 New Stations Across Chicago

8/30/2018 12:00 AM

The installations of new Divvy stations begin with the completion of a new one at the Malcolm X College campus on the Near West Side. From there, Divvy will install new stations in the River North, Englewood, Ukranian Village, and several more neighborhoods of Chicago. The new stations are funded through the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program.

In total, Divvy is adding more than thirty stations to the popular bike share system over the next few months to account for growing ridership, help build ridership and build in more flexibility in a few of the system’s busiest neighborhoods.  

“We’re very pleased to be at Malcolm X College to unveil the first of three dozen new Divvy stations we will be rolling out in the coming weeks,” said CDOT Commissioner, Rebekah Scheinfeld. “CDOT remains committed to continuing to build out the Divvy system citywide.  These new stations will improve the existing network by adding density to create a more robust system. And they will help to build our rider base to ensure the strength of the program.”

“Divvy’s popularity increases year over year. We’re focused on meeting demand every step of the way,” said Michael Critzon, General Manager of Divvy. “Now, when you finish your ride, you’ll be more likely than ever to quickly find an open dock, ensuring that bike share stays one of the most fun and seamless ways to get around Chicago.”

“As City Colleges’ center of excellence in healthcare, Malcolm X College is thrilled to host a new Divvy station, offering our students, faculty, staff and community members a way to achieve an active lifestyle and easily commute to and from our college’s convenient location in the heart of the Near West Side,” said Malcolm X College President, David Sanders.
