The Chicago Department of Transportation aims to offer all Chicago residents an affordable, accessible, and fun transportation option. Divvy for Everyone (D4E) provides qualifying residents with a $5 annual membership. The program also incorporates a cash payment system for those Chicago residents who do not have a debit card, credit card, or prepaid card required for a standard Divvy membership.
D4E Program Features
- First year, $5 annual membership
- Pay with credit, debit, prepaid card, or cash
- In-person enrollment at Divvy sign-up centers (locations below)

D4E is available to students at any of Chicago’s colleges and universities who qualify for financial aid (merit scholarships, grants, loans, etc.). D4E is also available to Chicago residents aged 16 and older receiving SNAP, WIC, LIHEAP, FAFSA, or public housing assistance.
