The Oak Park Board of Trustees ended its relationship with the Divvy bike-sharing program in early 2018, and now it appears the city of Evanston might not be far behind.

The news site, Evanston Now, reported last month that Divvy could be on the budgetary chopping block.

According to the article by Bill Smith, Divvy was the top item residents wanted cut from the budget in an online survey.

Of the 46 programs the city asked residents to rank in order of importance, Divvy, which has a net cost of $165,808, topped the list for elimination, according to the story.

In Oak Park, the program was costing the village about $26,665 a month.
