    That DNA article about Divvy in Andersonville is rife with errors.

    – No way are Clark @ Leland and Lawrence @ Ravenswood considered Andersonville. My best guess would be that they are in Ravenswood and Uptown, respectively.

    – The author references a future Clark and Berwyn station. No such station has been planned. A station has been planned for Clark and Bryn Mawr though.

    – The author mentions stations that should be available but are not. Not sure where she got that information from. The Divvy site clearly states this as planned stations.

    I take it that DNA does not employ fact checkers?

    Or am I just bummed out that I have to wait until 2014 for my very own Divvy station at Clark and Bryn Mawr?

  • Clark & Berwyn doesn’t show up on the online map, but it is listed on the printed map at the Lawrence & Clifton station:

    Last I checked, Divvy’s online map only includes ~370 of the 400 planned stations, so it’s possible that additional stations not shown on that map are also in the works.

    OK, I guess that is where she got her info from then.

  • The printed maps are due to be replaced soon, with an updated design (also an updated design for the other elements of the board).
