The price for a 24-hour Divvy pass spiked 40 percent this week. The price is now at $9.95 up from the $7 price tag riders have enjoyed since the bike-share launched two years ago.
Thousands of Chicago locals and tourists make use of the heavy-duty blue-bikes, and it is uncertain as to how the price jump will affect usage.
Divvy has also been expanding. In the last year, the company created 174 new stations, and will create two more before July sets.
