Celebrating our One Year Partnership with Divvy Bikes!

Can you believe it’s already been a whole year since we partnered with Divvy Bikes? Wow! Where does the time go? Since we announced that we would become Divvy’s exclusive sponsor, so many exciting changes have happened. Check it out below:

Our partnership with Divvy has helped expand the bike share system, improved and maintained bike lanes and encouraged cycling in all neighborhoods across Chicago.  This spring, 176 stations will be added and 1,750 bikes will extend Divvy's reach south to 75th Street in South Shore, north to Touhy Avenue in Rogers Park and west to Pulaski Road in Little Village and Avondale.

Since Divvy launched in June 2013, more than 3 million trips have been taken and nearly 7 million miles traveled. Of the total 23,000 active members, 696 are Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois employees and 1,281 are BCBSIL members.  As the state’s largest health insurer, we are committed to fostering healthy, active lifestyles, and our support of the Divvy program is directly in line with our healthy philosophy.

Did you know that as a BCBSIL member you too can take advantage of a 12-month discounted Divvy membership?

The yearly membership includes:

  • A 12-month membership for $65
  • Unlimited trips of 30 minutes or less
  • Availability 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Flexibility to rent and return bikes at ANY station in Chicago

The sign-up period is May 1 to July 31, 2015, and it is only for members and employees who do not currently have a membership with Divvy. If you are a member or employee of BCBSIL and already have a membership through us, you will automatically receive the BCBSIL price again when you renew your membership.
