The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) can install a group of bike racks, known as a bike corral, in on-street parking spaces. The city prefers to put these bike corrals near street corners as it improves visibility for pedestrians and reduces the crossing distance for them. Fees may apply.
In commercial districts, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) can install up to two free bike racks on the sidewalk in front of your property. These provide convenient bike parking for employees, visitors, and shoppers. Additional racks may be installed for a cost of $150 per bike rack.
