Validating Transportation

Validating Transportation

We’ve signed up with Validated, an app developed to find merchants near you who will discount your transportation or parking fees to thank you for your business. Validated is currently only available in Portland, Los Angeles, & Seattle and we are excited to be part of the roll out of this very cool service. Download the app and you’ll discover lots of local businesses near our store are also signed up.

Sure, we have a large parking lot serving both the main store and the outlet store, but paid parking is the new standard on many streets in the Central Eastside and around Portland.  Maybe parking isn’t an issue for you because you use car share or bike share. We want to support your choice in using these services, as well, and Validated helps us express that support.

It’s an easy system:

  • Find merchants that validate transportation.
  • Hit spending targets when you shop and dine.
  • Scan your receipt to verify the purchase.
  • Use credits to pay for transportation.

Spend $30+ and River City Bicycles and get $2 in Validated, um… validations.
Spend $150+ and  get $11 in validations.

As you earn validations you can apply those dollars towards your transportation costs. Validated allows you to apply your credits towards Lyft, Uber, ReachNow, Luxe Valet, PayByPhone parking app, and our favorite, Biketown.
