2023 Regional Transportation Plan
How people get around shapes their communities and everyday lives. The economic prosperity and quality of life in greater Portland depend on a transportation system that provides every person and business with access to safe, reliable and affordable ways to get around.
The Regional Transportation Plan is a blueprint that guides investments in all forms of travel – driving, transit, biking and walking – and the movement of goods and services throughout the greater Portland region. This update to the plan defines how the region will create a safe, reliable and affordable transportation system today through 2045.
High Capacity Transit Strategy
High capacity transit is public transportation that moves a lot of people quickly and often, such as light rail or bus rapid transit. The purpose of the High Capacity Transit Strategy is to provide a coordinated vision and a set of policies to make transit service faster and more reliable for more people in the greater Portland region.
