Your input during the public comment period will help guide decision-makers as they finalize the policies, strategies and project lists in the Regional Transportation Plan and High Capacity Transit Strategy before taking action in late 2023.
The 2023 Regional Transportation Plan provides the opportunity to update the investments the greater Portland region will make in roads, sidewalks, bikeways, transit and freight routes to support communities today and in the future. This update defines a path toward creating a safe, reliable, affordable and climate-friendly transportation system for the next 25 years.
The High Capacity Transit Strategy provides a vision for expanding the greater Portland region’s high capacity transit system — public transportation that moves a lot of people quickly and often, such as bus rapid transit and light rail. The strategy identifies priority investments and guidance for future decision-making.
