PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Getting around Portland in an affordable and active way will soon get a little easier for many people.

Portland City Council voted to approve a bike sharing program.

The plan is to have 600 bikes available to rent throughout the city.

It will cost $2.50 for a half hour.

People can also sign up for a monthly membership and the program won't use any taxpayer money.

City officials said they hope to have the program up and running by next July.
