Bicycle Parking

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) provides publicly accessible bicycle parking and works with businesses and the community to provide better long and short-term bicycle parking throughout the city. 

A free bicycle rack can be installed on the sidewalk in front of your business as long as the location meets the minimum requirements

PBOT will install one or two free bicycle racks for each development per year. Each additional rack is $150.
