Help PBOT Count Bikes at Bike Corrals

unnamedThe Portland Bureau of Transportation is looking for help from the public to count bicycles parked at the 145 bike parking corrals around the city. If you are out and about and see a bike corral, use this short online form to help us gather information that will be used to plan for future improvements. Three key pieces of information we want to know are; how many bikes are parked at the corral, if they include BIKETOWN bikes, and the date and time of observation.
