Evanston community members are invited to learn and share input on the City’s coming Divvy Bike Share program at a community meeting on Tuesday, January 13, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., in the Morton Civic Center Council Chambers, 2100 Ridge Ave.
The City of Evanston is partnering with the City of Chicago to expand Divvy Bike Share to Evanston in 2015 thanks to a $3 million state investment in the program, which will add 700 new bikes and 70 docking stations in Evanston, Oak Park and Chicago.
At the meeting, City of Evanston staff and Divvy representatives will provide an overview of bike sharing, review the process for station recommendations, and outline program goals and next steps. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and vote on their preferences for the eight initial Evanston station locations.
Meeting presentations and the survey will be made available online following the meeting. For more information, visit cityofevanston.org/divvybike or call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents can also dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
