One Shot: Not The Best Use Of Divvy

We've seen scores of people ride Divvy bikes on sidewalks, against traffic and even on Lake Shore Drive. But we haven't seen anyone bring a Divvy bike on a CTA "L" train.

Until now.

This photo was shared on Facebook by onetime Chicagoista Lorna Juett via here. The city's Transportation Department has long crowed about how they would like to see Divvy used to leverage CTA's bus and train system to allow passengers to complete journeys where trains and buses can't reach. But the maximum trip on one of the bikes is 30 minutes and sometimes that time limit can be a pain in the ass.

Somehow we don't feel this is what Mayor Emanuel and officials had in mind when Divvy launched last year.
