Divvy Shuts Down Amid 'Life-Threatening' Temperatures
CHICAGO — Divvy, the city's popular bike-share program, will shut down temporarily at 3 p.m. Sunday, it announced.
"Given what some forecasters are calling "'ife-threatening' wind chills, we feel it is appropriate to suspend service for the safety of our riders and our staff," Divvy officials said.
Bikes will be available once conditions are determined to be safe.
Divvy "would like to assure you that we expect to be open on most days this winter, just as we were open every day in December when we happily served nearly 45,000 trips," officials said.
The program shut down last week amid bad weather, opening Saturday after two days off.
