The Portland region is gearing up for a new kind of transit. For three years a diverse group of public, private and community partners crafted the Powell-Division Transit and Development strategy to bring more rapid and reliable bus service to Portland and Gresham, advance safer walking and biking in nearby neighborhoods and improve community stability through affordable housing and local economic development.
The new transit service, now called the Division Transit Project, will get thousands of people where they are going more reliably, safely and quickly. New service could begin in 2021.
Since January 2017, TriMet began leading project activities through design, construction and operation of the new transit service. Metro’s project website will continue to serve as an archive and resource for project activities through 2016.
