Transportation System Plan (TSP)

TSP Update Proposed Draft Tile NO TEXT

The TSP is currently undergoing an update with estimated approval in 2016. Learn more about the TSP Update here.

What is a Transportation System Plan?

The City of Portland is updating the Transportation System Plan (TSP), the long-range plan to guide transportation investments in Portland. Portland originally developed its Transportation System Plan in 2002 and it was 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. 

Components of the TSP include:

  • Policy: transportation goals, policies, and sub-policies
  • Plans: master street plans and modal plans
  • Financial Plan
  • List of transportation projects, with cost estimates, that are required for the land uses implemented by the Portland Comprehensive Plan
  • Strategies and regulations for implementation
