Several of the stations will be placed near parks, including River Park, Winnemac Park, Gross Park and Schreiber Park. A station at Peterson and Damen avenues will be inside Target's parking lot.

The distinctive blue bikes, which can be rented via $75 annual membership or a $7 24-hour pass, will be placed at:

  • Lawrence and Washtenaw avenues (Gross Park)
  • Lincoln and Winona avenues
  • Foster and Francisco avenues (River Park)
  • Lincoln and Bryn Mawr avenues (near Budlong Woods Library)
  • Foster and Damen avenues (Winnemac Park and Amundsen High School)
  • Balmoral and Wolcott avenues
  • Clark Street and Bryn Mawr Avenue (near Pierce Elementary)
  • Peterson and Damen avenues (Target)
  • Peterson and Maplewood avenues
  • Clark Street and Schreiber Avenue (Schreiber Park)

Divvy debuted in June 2013 with 70 stations and has since grown to 300 stations and 3,000 bikes, with a stated goal of 475 stations and 4,750 bikes.
