Chicago's bike sharing system has a new station outside the home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks.

City officials opened up a Divvy station Monday near the United Center. It's one of 20 stations on Chicago's West Side.

Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Gabe Klein says the system is a great way for fans to travel to the venue for a game or a concert.

The city launched the bike sharing program in June. City officials estimate that since then users have taken more than 310,000 trips.

By next spring, Divvy plans to have 400 stations with 4,000 bikes citywide.
