CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Chicagoans and tourists have taken more than 365,000 trips on Divvy bikes, racking up an estimated 1 million miles since the debut of the bike-share programs two-and-a-half months ago.

The Chicago Department of Transportation's bike sharing system has 8,000 annual members, the mayor's office announced Thursday.

"This summer, Chicagoans and visitors have shown a tremendous amount of participation and enthusiasm for bike sharing," Mayor Emanuel said in a statement.

Divvy plans to install 60 more stations in the next few weeks, adding to the 240 already in place, the statement said.

By next spring, Divvy bikes will be in 400 neighborhood locations with 4,000 bikes available, the statement said.
