Chicago's new bicycle-sharing program is asking city residents where the next 175 sidewalk docking stations should be located.

The Divvy program with its bright blue bikes currently has 300 stations across Chicago. Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Tuesday that a new website -- Suggest.Divvybikes.com -- is collecting feedback on where the next stations should be installed in 2014.

Residents and visitors have taken more than 725,000 trips and ridden more than 1.7 million miles on the bikes since the system launched in late June. Riders have purchased more than 130,000 daily passes and 11,500 annual memberships.

Officials say the Chicago program would be the biggest in North America by number of docking stations after the expansion.
