Divvy Bikes: a safe way to get around Chicago

By Caroline Kenny

Getting around Chicago can be tough these days. With its steady stream of traffic on the highways and residual delays on the CTA, many have turned to an alternate way of navigating the city: Divvy bikes.

According to a report released by the Chicago Tribune, Divvy bikes have only been the cause of 18 of the 2,803 bicycle accidents within the city of Chicago since their introduction in June 2013.
