Portland Serious About Safe Routes to School
Safety is Mayor Adams’ top priority for Portland’s roadways. Safety takes on special importance in kids’ daily trips to and from school. During his years as the commissioner in charge of transportation, Mayor Adams has been a passionate supporter of Portland’s Safe Routes to School program.
