The Metro Council directed that the Get Moving 2020 plan should prioritize invesments that:
- Improve safety for everyone
- Prevent displacement and benefit communities of color
- Make it easier to get around
- Support resiliency from disasters and emergencies
- Support clean air, clean water, and healthy ecosystems
- Support economic growth
- Increase opportunity for low-income Oregonians
- Leverage regional and local investments
A shared vision
The Get Moving 2020 plan reflects greater Portland's priorities because it was built by people who live here.
Since January 2019, thousands of community members have shared their views in 11 different languages. They attended dozens of workshops and events around the region, submitted written testimony and took online surveys.
But that's not all. Volunteer teams in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties toured major travel routes and provided feedback on potential projects. Community-based organizations led discussions with people of color to help shape investments that make our transportation system safer, give people more choices in how they get around, and make TriMet free for high school students.
Metro also worked with the Transportation Funding Task Force and met regularly with government partners, business leaders, transportation advocates, and other stakeholders.
