    The link to the trib story about Divvy hiring an ad company is incorrect

  • Anonymous

    The ad company hired by the city is moving fast.
    Yesterday I noticed ads on two of the billboards that accompany Divvy stations

  • Yep, the ads advertising Divvy – which I think were clever – were quickly replaced by ads for a certain mobile phone operator. I think the Divvy ads should remain until we have thousands more members. They’re only up to 1,500 right now.
