I use Divvy as a part of my overall commute. I still ride the bus or train in the mornings so that I don’t arrive to work all sweaty. But in the afternoon, I will change clothes and then commute home. Unlike zipcars, you don’t have to return a divvy bike to any particular station. As long as there is a stall open at the station, you can return a bike there.
Using a divvy bike to commute home is really a great example of two wrongs make a right. I dislike commuting. I dislike exercise. But put the two together, and it’s wonderful. I feel so productive. And, I feel mentally refreshed when I arrive home. I love it. Divvy helps make Chicago that much more livable of a city.
