The Nike-sponsored bike share program officially launched last Tuesday. Portland now has 1,000 bright orange rental bikes at 100 stations throughout the city, with 3 stations located on the PSU campus.
The PSU stations are located at the Student Recreation Center, the Engineering Building, the Smith Memorial Student Union (on the Broadway side), and at the Collaborative Life Sciences Building.

We are also working on rolling out a special PSU student and staff rate. If you’ve already joined BIKETOWN, or plan to join in the near future, you’ll still be eligible to receive the special PSU rate as soon as we work out all the details.
HOW IT WORKS
BIKETOWN bikes can be unlocked with a 6-digit account number (which members receive during registration) or a Member Card that users can attain at one of the 20 station kiosks for a small fee. Bikes can also be reserved ahead of time, through the mobile app or website, up to 10 min. before use.
Bikes can be returned to any station or left in a public bike rack within the service area for an additional $2 fee. There’s also a $1 account credit incentive each time you return a bike that’s been locked at a public rack back to a BIKETOWN station.
Check out the BIKETOWN website for more information and to sign up for a membership.
