NW resident William chose to opt out of his Zone M parking permit, replacing his on-street permit with a @biketownpdx membership and a @ridetrimet Hop pass. This is part of our comprehensive Zone M parking and transportation program in NW. We'll be at the Lucky Lab in NW renewing permits, taking feedback about the transportation program, and talking BIKETOWN, Hop pass and more on Wednesday from 5-7pm and Saturday from noon to 2pm.

Before. During. After.
The N Columbia Blvd Sidewalk Infill project is complete!

Our crews removed vegetation and filled approximately 500 linear feet of sidewalk. This Active Transportation Capital Improvement Project, constructed by PBOT Maintenance Operations, is an important safety improvement. Previously, walking along this section of Columbia Blvd was nearly impossible without entering the street where there is no shoulder and lots of fast moving vehicles and trucks.
Have you used this new stretch of sidewalk yet?

Our Vision Zero team joined the City of Portland's Fleet team this morning to begin applying 2500 stickers on all City-owned cars and trucks.
Full sticker breakdown is as follows: • 1200 stickers for City cars and light trucks which read “Safe Speeds Save Lives”
• 650 stickers for the back of the City's heavy trucks which read “Can you see me? Let’s make eye contact. Let’s be safe.” • 650 stickers on the right side of the City's heavy trucks reading, “Pardon me, you may be in my blind spot”

Thanks to the City Fleet team for helping us get the word out about #VisionZero and encouraging safe driving behavior!

And they're off! The new #AdaptiveBIKETOWN bikes were taken on their first ride today as part of the kickoff celebration of the first City-sponsored program of its kind in the nation. An extension of @biketownpdx , Portland’s bike share program, Adaptive BIKETOWN is a bike rental service for people with varying abilities and will offer a mix of tandem, hand cycles and three-wheeled bicycles for rent by the hour with the goal of increasing access to cycling. Head over to @albertina_kerr's Kerr Bikes rental shop by @omsi to see them for yourself and learn more online at www.adaptivebiketown.com (link in profile).

Happy birthday @biketownpdx! We can't help but get a little emotional when we think about what an amazing first year it's been with the orange bikes. 🍊🚲🎉❤️❤️❤️❤️
