Could Glencoe Incorporate a bike sharing program like the Chicago one located between the Train Station & The Botanical Gardens?

Asked by Deborah Bartelstein, Glencoe, IL Thu May 2, 2013

Hundreds of three-speed bikes painted "Chicago blue" will hit the streets in June when the city debuts a bicycle-sharing rental program that originally was set to launch last summer, officials are expected to announce Thursday.

Operating under the name Divvy, which is intended to convey the idea of sharing bikes, the system will start out with about 75 solar-powered docking stations in the downtown and River North areas and expand within a year to 400 stations and about 4,000 bicycles covering much of the city, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.

The federally funded program is envisioned for the public to ride the bikes on short trips of mostly 30 minutes or less, instead of taking a taxicab or a bus or, worst of all, driving.

Would be a great thing to have in the summer, especially with so many people traveling up north from the city to see the Botanic Gardens.
