What is the Transportation Wallet?
The Transportation Wallet is a bundled package of TriMet, Portland Streetcar, and BIKETOWN passes made possible by parking permit surcharge fees collected in two Area Parking Permit Districts. A portion of the collected surcharges offset the retail cost of the Transportation Wallet, which is available to people who live or work in the parking districts. Funds collected in the parking districts must be spent on projects and programs back in the respective districts. The Transportation Wallet is an effective, low-cost strategy to reduce parking demand and congestion by increasing trips taken on transit and by biking and walking.

I already have a Transportation Wallet, and my BIKETOWN membership is set to “auto-renew”. Will this automatically renew the entire Transportation Wallet package?
No. You must go to www.transportationwallet.com and fill out the form again. You will be asked if you have “ever ridden a BIKETOWN bike”, which alerts us that you are already in the BIKETOWN system. You will not have to fill out your information again on the BIKETOWN webpage.

Your BIKETOWN membership is activated after purchasing, so you can begin riding bikes immediately. The Hop card with TriMet value and an annual Portland Streetcar pass will be mailed to you within 10 business days.
What if I already have a BIKETOWN membership?
Visit www.transportationwallet.com and fill out the online form. You will be asked if you have “ever ridden a BIKETOWN bike”.
