CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

One million trips have been taken on the city’s Divvy bikes since the bike-sharing system began nine months ago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Wednesday.

“Divvy has been a great success, and for the millionth time, these bikes have provided a fun, convenient and active way to explore Chicago,” the mayor said in a statement.

“This spring and summer, we expect even more people to start using bike sharing as a transit option for getting around the city,” Emanuel said.

The milestone was passed Tuesday during the first “Divvy Week,” which is being celebrated with special promotions and activities to encourage residents and visitors to try Divvy.

Chicagoans who become annual members this week receive a Chipotle gift card.
