(Apr. 18, 2023) The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) had an exciting 2022 for its shared micromobility programs. In Portland, shared micromobility refers to the E-Scooter and BIKETOWN bike-share programs. Three e-scooter companies operate under a PBOT-issued permit (Bird, Lime and Spin). Lyft operates BIKETOWN under a contract with PBOT and through a public-private partnership between Nike and PBOT.​

2022 was a historic year for Portland’s E-Scooter and BIKETOWN programs. Both programs surpassed pre-pandemic ridership levels and generated an unprecedented number of annual trips.

Riders have taken nearly 6.5 million trips since the programs began.​ E-scooter and bike-share had robust year-over-year growth in 2021 and 2022. We expect ridership for both systems to grow even further in 2023. ​
