BTA needs new office space

BTA office door

The BTA has grown out of their downtown office and they’re hunting for new office space. I’m posting this to the community in case anyone has a tip that might help them find a new space. We need them working on bike issues…not worrying about finding a new office!

Here’s the word from Executive Director Evan Manvel.

“We’re looking for 1700-2000 square feet, accessible to downtown, as we have many meetings with City Hall and PDOT. We have been at our current location for five years, and have more than doubled in size since we moved here (4 people to 10).

We’re hoping to have good bike parking, a shower, a kitchenette, a good meeting room, and some private offices. Ideally, we’d be ground floor, but we’re considering office space as well. There are lots of different ideas floating out there, including partnering with bike parking, bike shops, coffee shops, condos, etc., or having a big Go By Bike sign outside, a la the Go by Train and Go by Streetcar signs.”

If anyone out there has ideas, tips, or empty downtown office space just lying around, get in touch with Evan. His email address is evan (a) bta4bikes (dot) org.

We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    The recently vacated Wild Oats on SE Division? The building is owned by the owner of New Seasons a few blocks away and in the midst of Portland’s best neighborhood. (I live near there :-)
