This package is the first set of recommended updates to the 2007 Transportation System Plan.
The second set of updates will be posted for public review in fall 2015.
The City of Portland is updating the Transportation System Plan (TSP),
the long-range plan guiding transportation investments in the City. Portland originally developed its TSP in 2002 and it was last updated in 2007. Periodic updates of the TSP are mandated by the State of Oregon.
The TSP meets state and regional planning requirements and addresses local transportation needs for cost-effective street, transit, freight, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements. The plan will provide transportation options for residents, employees, visitors, and firms doing business in Portland, making it more convenient to walk, bike, take transit—and drive less—while meeting their daily needs. The TSP provides a balanced transportation system to support neighborhood livability and economic development.

The purpose of the TSP is to guide the maintenance, development, and implementation of Portland’s transportation system, to accommodate 20 years of growth in population and employment, and to implement the plans and regulations of the regional government and the State of Oregon, including Metro’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the Oregon Transportation Planning Rule (TPR).
The TSP is a component of the Portland Comprehensive Plan and is adopted concurrently with the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan includes goals and policies whereas the TSP provides greater detail on the sub-policies and implementation strategies.
