The Portland Bureau of Transportation is expected to ask City Council on June 19 to extend a key contract underlying the Biketown bike-share system through April 2020.
Biketown's contract with Motivate, which operates the bike share program, is set to expire on August 1.
It's not yet clear when PBOT will issue a request for proposals for a new bike-share program. That in turn will delay the arrival of electric bikes to Portland.
WW reported last year that e-bikes were expected to join scooters on the streets of Portland by this August. It's not clear at this point when that will happen, but the e-bikes are expected to arrive sometime before April 2020.
