Portland, known for its impressive bike share efforts, is expanding its Biketown program to be more inclusive of riders with disabilities. The city has interviewed this segment of riders to understand their specific needs and is working to implement a plan that provides them with more mobility options.
At Routematch, we’re all about encouraging multi-modal trips, whether that’s via trains, buses and paratransit vehicles, or car sharing and bikes. With bicycles, they not only have the advantage of being good exercise, but they’re efficient, zero-emission transportation that takes another car off the road. But sometimes, it can be difficult to read bicycle path maps for a city and get a feel for the path they’re following.
