BIKETOWN is Portland’s bike share program, launched in July 2016 with 1,000 bikes at 100 stations across downtown and several neighborhoods. The system is designed for quick trips with convenience in mind, and it’s a fun and affordable way to get around.
Take it simple, Riding a BIKETOWN only need 3 steps. Here is How BIKETOWN Works.
Choose your plan and sign up for a BIKETOWN membership through the website, mobile app or a station kiosk.
Enter your 6-digit account number and 4-digit PIN into the keypad on the back of the bike to unlock it. Or use a Member Card + PIN.
Place the U-lock in the holster before you take off. To make a quick stop, press the “HOLD” button and lock the bike to a rack.
To end a ride, lock your bike to any BIKETOWN station. Or lock it at a public bike rack for a small additional fee.
