SmartTrips for New Movers: The Right Time for Behavior Change
Presented by Sarah Goforth, PBOT Active Transportation and Safety Division
Since 2014 Portland SmartTrips has provided active transportation information to over 73,000 new mover households. Capitalizing on an influential time when movers are already in a state of change, SmartTrips encourages new movers to consider all of their transportation options. As a result, program participants report they are walking, biking, and taking transit more than prior to moving. In fact, they’re driving 7% less for both commute and non-commute trips. Join us for a rich storytelling event told through data, charts, and travel behavior analysis.
Sarah Goforth works for PBOT on the Portland SmartTrips program. She is one of three bicycle delivery staffers and is also responsible for conducting travel surveys and data analysis, as well as overseeing the Active Transportation Ambassadors and outreach program.

Opening Portland's Streets - Local Innovation and International Connections
Portland's street network is the largest publically-owned open space in the city. Since the founding of the city people used this space for movement, commerce, recreation and community connection. Sometime in the first half of the 20th century, however, policy and perceptions shifted to prioritize the space almost exclusively for movement and storage of motor vehicles.
In the 21st century the City and its residents are looking to support a healthy balance of uses for our public right-of-way. Come learn about experiments in tactical urbanism, Open Streets events and the International Open Streets Summit that Portland will host in August.
