Biketown

As a bicycle sharing system that serves the city of Portland, Oregon, you can pay for BIKETOWN passes through 3 ways: Single Ride, Day Pass and Annual Membership. Beside these plans. There are three more options: Nike Employees, Group Membership and Low-Income Portlanders.

1Single Ride $2.50/trip
Good for one trip up to 30 minutes

Great for quick trips around the city.

Grab a Single Ride whenever you feel like biking instead of driving or taking the bus. Even if you own a bike, BIKETOWN is useful for one-way trips or spontaneous rides, and spares your own bike from additional wear and tear.

Each Single Ride costs $2.50 and includes 30 minutes of ride time. Rides longer than 30 minutes are an additional 10 cents per minute.

If you reserve a bike from the website or mobile app, the time it’s on hold counts toward your 30 minutes. If you aren’t able to pick up the bike before the 10-minute hold expires, you forfeit the $2.50 cost of the Single Ride.

Your Single Ride ends when you lock your bike to a BIKETOWN station or to a public bike rack for a small additional fee ($2 inside the system area and $20 outside the system area).
