    The survey reported in the Tribune doesn’t take into account the number of cyclists using any given street, so it’s results are meaningless. It just shows which street in each city has the most cyclists.

    Can’t believe the south-side alderman is already bashing the dockless bike share pilot before it’s even begun. If Divvy was going to put bike stations there, they would have done it already. Take what is currently offered to you and see how that goes. The lower cost to use a dockless bike compared to a Divvy bike will be more desired for any user.
