On July 21, the City of Portland, in partnership with Different Spokes (a local bike shop), launched a new adaptive bike rental pilot program, Adaptive Biketown. Adaptive Biketown builds on Portland’s existing Biketown bikeshare program by providing riders with access to a mix of tandem, hand-cycle, and three-wheeled bikes. Through this program, 10 bikes are available at Kerr Bikes, and can be rented by seniors, TriMet Honored Citizens, and individuals with disabilities for either $5 per hour or $12 for three hours. Adaptive Biketown is co-funded by the Portland Bureau of Transportation and Nike and aims to create an inclusive mobility ecosystem.
