Bike Commuting

More than seven percent of all Portland commuters choose to get to work by bike. That’s over 17,000 workers out pedaling, which contributes to a significant reduction to our city’s congestion, parking demand, and greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks Portland bike commuters!

With some simple advance planning, bike commuting can make getting to work a reliable and enjoyable experience. When you travel by bicycle, you no longer have to worry about being delayed in traffic, or have to circle around the block looking for parking. Even more, you save time by getting some exercise during your commute, not to mention some extra dollars in your pocketbook by avoiding costs associated with driving.
