Author: PSU Bike Hub
Posted: September 20, 2016

At the PSU Bike Hub, we're dedicated to making it as easy as possible for everyone to commute by bike. That's why we've partnered with BIKETOWN to offer reduced rates on their annual memberships to PSU students.

We're happy to announce that PSU students can now sign up for an annual BIKETOWN membership for just $5/month (general public rate: $12/month).

How It Works

JOIN

Sign up for an Annual Membership at https://widget.socialbicycles.com/92/389. Your membership will include 90 min. of riding time per day. Additional time is billed at 10 cents per minute. Also, you’ll need to keep an active credit card on file.

UNLOCK

Find available bikes on the System Map or using the BIKETOWNpdx mobile app. Enter your 6-digit account number (assigned at signup) and the 4-digit PIN that you selected into the keypad on the back of any available bike to unlock it. Or pick up a free Member Card from a station with a kiosk, and use that plus your PIN.

RIDE

Place the U-lock in the holster on the left side of the bike and start your ride. Your membership includes 90 minutes of riding time per day, and extra time is only an additional 10 cents per minute. To make a quick stop along your ride, press the “HOLD” button on the keypad and lock your bike to a rack for up to 30 minutes.

LOCK

To end a ride, lock your bike to any BIKETOWN station. Or lock it to a public bike rack for an additional fee ($2 within the system area and $20 outside of the system area).
