I'd be interested to hear about new stations as they pop up.

I was excited to find a new station only 2 blocks from my house last night (a block closer than the planned location):

I think this is accurate, except Damen/Belle Plaine got postponed and Stetson/South Water Street got put in instead.

Six new stations planned for today: Lake Shore Dr & Stratford Pl, Broadway & Wilson Ave, Broadway & Argyle St, Broadway & Berwyn Ave, Paulina St & Montrose Ave, and Damen Ave & Belle Plaine Ave.

Broadway and Argyle is not yet on-line either

Yeah, I'm not sure about that one.  I was out at three of the sites: Broadway/Wilson, Broadway/Berwyn & Stetson/South Water, but not the other three, so I'm not absolutely certain the station went in at Argyle.  I didn't hear anything about the crew not successfully installing the station, but sometimes all it takes to call things off is an illegally parked car or two right where we need to work. Stetson doesn't seem to be online either, though I helped with the physical installation of the station, so I know it's there.  Possibly the tech folks (who follow the deployment crew) didn't want to open up the kiosks in this evening's downpour to boot up the stations, and they'll wait until tomorrow.  Getting the electronics inside all wet is usually considered a bad idea.

7:30 AM update: both Argyle/Broadway & Stetson/South Water are online now, according to the Divvy map.  The techs worked late last night.

That's yesterday's news. What's on the docket today, Oh Obi-Wan Kenobi? :)

I got my fob (*fob fob fob*).

Still have not ridden.... thinking it might be pretty convenient if Western Ave could be filled in just a bit between 21st and Division (although that distance is doable in 30 minutes if one doesn't stop to chat with anyone along the way...)

Good news.  If anyone is interested, there's a good street market on Thursday night on Argyle between Kenmore and Sheridan (next Thursday is the last I think).  Sun Wah roasts and sells whole ducks to take home.

I'm on Divvy until my replacement wheel comes in.  Got some serious cracks.

The final Night Market on Argyle for this season is tonight.

At long last, there is a Divvy station within a five minute walk from where I live at Lake Shore and Stratford.

Congrats!

Yep, plus Clark/Schiller, Halsted/Roscoe, Halsted/Waveland, Broadway/Barry.

 

From today's Divvy Facebook feed: "Seven new stations planned for today:

Leavitt St & Armitage Ave

Damen Ave & Charleston St

Southport Ave & Clybourn Ave

Sheffield Ave & Wrightwood Ave

Lincoln Ave & Eastwood Ave

Clarendon Ave & Gordon Terrace

Lakeview Ave & Fullerton Pkwy."

 

(Weather conditions may affect this list, I'm guessing.)
