Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Wednesday morning that Chicagoans and visitors have taken over a million trips on Divvy, Chicago's bike share system, in nine months. The one millionth ride was taken on Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

"This has been a great success," Emanuel said. "This spring and summer we exepct even more people to start using bike sharing as a transit option for getting around the city."

To celebrate the warmer weather and bicycling, Emanuel designated this week, April 21 -27, to be "Divvy Week." Divvy Week deals include discounted daily passes and extra perks for new annual members, like a free burrito at Chipotle or discounted frozen yogurt at Forever Yogurt.
