The 2035 Regional Transportation Plan sets out a strong vision and ambitious goals that won't be met overnight, but sets the Portland metropolitan region solidly on course to meet them. Development of the new plan was a multi-year collaborative effort. Metro worked closely with many people, local governments, businesses, community and environmental groups, TriMet, the state and other partners.
The result is a plan that calls for transportation investments that support the region’s economy, foster vibrant communities and expand safe, affordable transportation choices for families and businesses. Policies and investments in the plan aim to make the most of past investments, enhance mobility, and increase access to jobs, services, schools and recreational opportunities for everyone.
Oregon law requires Portland area cities and counties to update their local transportation system plans to be consistent with the new RTP. The next step is for communities around the region to update their local TSPs to bring the RTP vision to life in a way that also supports their aspirations and needs.
