As announced by 12th Ward Alderman George Cardenas, Chicago's Divvy bike sharing system will be adding two new stations to the McKinley Park neighborhood. The two new racks will hold up to 11 bikes each and reside at Pershing Road and Ashland Avenue and at Pershing Road and Damen Avenue.

Cardenas credited the additions to greater interest in neighborhood biking supported by the new bike lanes on Pershing Road. "A 21st century neighborhood needs 21st century amenities such as Divvy to attract housing, tourism and recreational growth," he said.

The stations are expected to be in place before the 12th Ward Bike Parade, scheduled for June 2016, and will join the neighborhood's existing Divvy stations at the 35th/Archer and Ashland El stops on the Orange Line, and at 35th and Wood.
