Join us: Listening session on Monday, May 9

State, regional and local leaders will talk with stakeholders and hear from community members about making our streets safe.

Portlanders deserve safe streets on which to walk, bike, operate mobility devices, access transit and drive. PBOT aims to make our transportation system the safest possible and to eliminate serious injuries and deaths on our streets by 2025. This effort is known as Vision Zero.


Vision Zero acknowledges that the death or serious injury of even one person on Portland roadways is one too many. When answering the question, “How many of our family members, friends, or neighbors can we accept being killed or maimed in traffic?” the only acceptable answer is zero.

Read about Portland's Vision Zero Task Force charged with developing a community action plan to dramatically reduce serious and fatal crashes on Portland’s roads.
