The official app for Divvy, Chicago’s bike share system.
Divvy consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable bikes that are locked into a network of docking stations throughout the city. Our bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any other station in the system, making them ideal for one-way trips. Bikeshare is a greener, healthier way to get around — whether you’re commuting, running errands, meeting friends, or exploring in a new city.
The Divvy App gives you access to thousands of bikes in your area — unlock and pay directly from the app and get going.
The Divvy App also shows upcoming public transit departures, including CTA ‘L’ train lines, local & express buses, shuttle buses, the Jeffery Jump Bus, Metra trains, PACE buses and the South Shore Line train.
Within the app, you can purchase the following Divvy passes:

Ratings and Reviews
Mostly good app
The app is pretty good but for 2 complaints:
- if a bike is “dead” (red light on) it still appears to count as available. So you might walk to a station that has 4 bikes only to find that all 4 of them are unusable
- at one point my account was suspended simply because of an expired credit card and I wasn’t able to do anything through the app to fix it. Not to mention I received no email warning that my account was about to be suspended
Use any other mode of transportation
Absolutely horrible if you want to rely on it as a form of transportation. If you want to take random rides for fun, I guess it’s fine. Their bikes are insanely heavy and hard to maneuver. The seats are impossible to adjust. The baskets they have are completely useless so you better not have anything that you need to bring with you. The e bikes are kind of good but same basket issue and you can never find them or their batteries are dead. And then there’s the issue of the docks. It’s feast or famine. They either have completely full docks so you can’t lock up the bike you have or there’s no bikes available. I tried using it as my commute to work but the complete lack of dependability on their end meant I was either going to be late or I had to use different transport. And then it’s only financially feasible if you pay for the year which if you only use it occasionally is not worth it. I don’t understand. I’ve used bike shares in other cities and they are leaps and bounds better than divvy. The bikes actually work, they have decent baskets so if you have a bag to tote it’s not a problem, you can actually find the bikes and there’s plenty of docks. Also, be wary of the e bikes because I had a $15 ride recently that was only 5 miles because I happened to be in a higher COL area. Save your money and buy yourself a bike that actually works, take the el, walk, drive. Don’t use divvy.
Divvy is my key to the city.
Last year I signed up for a Divvy for all membership and I was nervous to use it it during the pandemic I started using it and gained confidence to bike all over the city, weather its to a friends miles away or a sunrise or sunset and even grocery shopping. The best things is I don’t need to worry about bike maintenance, it being stolen or lugging it up and down my steps like I would if I had a bike :) At first I didn’t like being limited to 45 minutes and having to check to see if there were bikes in my area and open docks at my destination, but it is not really an inconvenience and the mobility and adventures I have access to void those inconveniences :)
