Having been its home base for 40 years, Nike has a strong community connection to the city of Portland, and is partnering with its Bureau of Transportation to bring BIKETOWN, a bike share program. Comparable to New York City’s very own Citi Bike, the goal of this version is simple: get active. The $10 million USD plan will increase the number of bikes in the program from 600 to 1,000.
