A minimum of 75 new bike share stations will be installed, in new neighbourhoods such as Burnside, Garfield Park, Chatham, and in the suburban locations of Oak Park and Evanston. The expansion will mean more than 5,000 bikes will be available across Chicago, at 571 stations. Read more at: chicagoist.com
