CHICAGO — Six months after buying Motivate, the operator of Chicago’s Divvy bike-sharing program, Lyft began displaying public transit routes and schedules in its app for Metra, CTA, and South Shore Line routes and schedules, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chicago is the fifth city in which Lyft rolled out the new feature, called Nearby Transit. Other cities include Santa Monica, California; Seattle; Washington, D.C.; and Los Angeles. A spokesperson for Lyft told the Tribune that the company wants more of its customers to use different types of transit on their daily commutes.

Spokespeople for Metra, the South Shore Line, and the CTA all said they were pleased Lyft is including the information, because getting people from the transit stations to their final destination is a challenge that needs to be addressed. For the full story, click here.
