On Earth Day last Saturday, Chicago kicked off its fourth annual “Divvy Week” promotion (it’s a little hard to recall the days before Divvy existed), with plenty of deals and incentives to try bike-share, or get back in the saddle if it’s been a while. The promotion runs through this Sunday, April 30.

For new riders: From now until Friday, April 28, anyone can get a $5 24-hour pass (normally $9.95) by retrieving a discount code at DivvyBikes.com/save5. Enter your email address and you’ll receive the code to get the $5 pass at any station location, or by downloading Transit App.

Also for new riders, if you sign up for an annual membership at DivvyBikes.com at the usual $99 price now through Friday 30, Divvy will send you a Buy-One-Get-One Free card for Chipotle with your Divvy membership packet.

For existing members: Today, April 25, current Divvy members can show their Divvy key fob at any local Chipotle for a BOGO deal.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26, Divvy will be serving free Dark Matter coffee for all morning riders at select stations. Also tomorrow, Divvy members can show their Divvy key at any Chicagoland Garret Popcorn Shop for a BOGO bag deal.

So be sure to take advantage of the fabulous spring weather we’re currently enjoying and get some miles in. And, speaking of burritos, some other great destinations for a Divvy ride are the many taquerias rated on the Burrito Tracker website, created by Streetsblog Chicago’s own Steven Vance.

The survey also asked members for their opinion of hypothetical changes to the system’s current price and fee […]
