The official app for BIKETOWN, Portland’s bike share system.

BIKETOWN consists of a fleet of specially designed, sturdy and durable electric bikes that can be locked at any BIKETOWN station or bike rack throughout the city. Bike share is a greener, healthier way to get around — whether you’re commuting, running errands, meeting friends, or exploring in a new city.

The BIKETOWN App gives you access to hundreds of bikes in your area — unlock and pay directly from the app and get going.

The BIKETOWN App also shows upcoming public transit departures, including train lines, local buses, and streetcars.

Within the app, you can either purchase an annual BIKETOWN membership or single rides.

Happy riding!

This app saved me from homelessness. I was able to get approved for the biketown for ALL program and I used the bike for door dash and made enough money to rent a car and take door dash to the next level and eventually I got into a room for rent after a couple of weeks. Seriously you guys at Lyft ARE THE GOOD GUYS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL. Once I get my own car I’ll definitely be driving for Lyft again. #teamlyft💪🏼

HORRIBLE Lyft take over of Biketowm

When Lyft took over BIKETOWN they robbed my acct of 100 dollars. I had all the screenshots called them repeatedly, sent all the screenshots, receipts etc. They continually gave me the run around, which never happened before Lyft took over, said they’d email me about it, never happened; said they’d call in 24hrs twice, never happened, twice; said it’d take 5-7 business days, well here we are 1.5 MONTHS later. I liked the old bikes because it was a bike like an actual bike that provided you exercise. These electric bikes defeat the purpose and I’m a yearly member and THEY TOOK AWAY THE FREE 1.5 hrs a day if you’re a yearly member. The pricing is horrendous and way overly priced. Lyft ruined biketown, I’m just going to get a regular bike now, don’t waste your money or time on these “bikes.” This isn’t going to last long anyway so don’t buy a membership either, they’ll definitely ghost with your money too when this expensive new bs flops.

Completely unreliable, worst bikeshare

I’ve had a yearly membership and this will be my last year. 80% of the experience has been unlocking a bike that then runs out of batteries in 3 blocks, leaving you to either stop and try to find another station and another bike, or try to ride this monstrosity of a bike to your destination which is an insane amount of energy if you’ve ever tried to ride a dead e-bike. Then there is no place in the app to report that the bike battery is dead so you inevitably subject the next person to a dead bike battery too, and you’ve paid $5 for the luxury of being late to whatever you’re going to or arriving in a sweaty disgusting mess because you decided to ride a dead bike. It’s insane that they don’t disable bikes that are out or extremely low on battery and everyone I’ve talked to who has tried Biketown has had the same experience. Too bad!
