CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Divvy bike share program is expanding this summer.

A new station outside the Garfield Park Conservatory is one of 85 being installed this year. New stations will also be appearing in the Austin, Burnside, Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, Brighton Park, Englewood and Rogers Park neighborhoods.

The plan is to provide Divvy access to more communities on Chicago's South and West sides.

When the expansion is complete by mid-summer, Divvy will have more than 580 stations and more than 5,800 bikes.
