On Tuesday, the city announced a new “Divvy for Everyone” program, an expansion of the bike sharing service geared toward residents who fall below certain income thresholds.
Divvy has become a popular mode of transportation, but has been outside the budget of many city residents, a problem the D4E is intended to fix.
But, many of the areas which could benefits from an income-adjusted Divvy program have no access to Divvy station until more expansion is undertaken.
