Safe streets are the foundation of a livable region. When people step out their front door, they expect and deserve a safe way to get where they're going, whether it's walking or bicycling in the neighborhood, getting to transit or driving down a highway.
A transportation system that is safe for everyone is a top priority for communities across the greater Portland region. More and more communities are adopting Vision Zero or Towards Zero Deaths policies, signifying the importance of transportation safety to achieving a wide variety of community goals.
Metro is helping communities achieve these goals by including a new regional transportation safety strategy as a cornerstone of the 2018 Regional Transportation Plan.
