Crain's Chicago Business reported Wednesday that Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn rejected a $3 million grant that would have brought the Divvy bike-sharing program to the suburbs of Oak Park and Evanston.
The business journal reported that the grant would have made up "11 percent of the $27.4 million in public funding" Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration would have used to expand the program.
The funds would have purchased 75 docking stations in the two communities, Crain's reports.
