The bike-sharing station recently opened at 35th and Wentworth, one of 85 new stations installed in the city in the last two months, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.
Divvy is offering valet service for all four games in the Crosstown series, two each on the South Side and the North Side. Attendants will ensure that Divvy riders have a guaranteed dock available. The valet service will be available:

“This week, all eyes in Chicago will be on the great Crosstown Classic rivalry between the White Sox and Cubs, so we are very excited to announce a new Divvy station on the South Side right outside the home of the White Sox,” Mayor Emanuel said in a statement.
