How to Use the Portland Progress Dashboard

This dashboard is an information and accountability tool. With it, you can learn about the full scope of the bureau's two-year work plan, Portland Progress.  You can also track the bureau's progress as it works to complete its Portland Progress goals.

The overall goals may be considered audacious by some, but the workplan makes the vision actionable by laying out tangible steps to move us toward the future. The workplan builds from the directives and priorities identified in the foundational plans that guide the Bureau of Transportation - the Portland Plan, the Comprehensive Plan, the Transportation System Plan and the Climate Action Plan.

The actions in Portland Progress represent just a portion of PBOT's work. They do not encompass the full spectrum of services the agency provides but represent initiatives that will make the bureau stronger and push us to reach our goals.

Themes, Objectives and Action Items

The Portland Progress workplan is divided into six themes: Preserve + OperateVision ZeroBuild a FutureManage City AssetsHealth + Vitality and Shoring Up the Foundation.

There are separate objectives within each theme that focus on specific areas of work. Each objective contains between 3 to 23 action items. In total, Portland Progress has 166 action items.

Measuring Progress

Each action item has been broken down by PBOT staff into four implementation steps. At the end of each quarter, PBOT staff provide a status update on each action item. These status numbers range from 0 (not yet initiated) to 4 (completed) and inform the dashboard. 

As PBOT tackles the goals set forth in the workplan, we will provide regular updates on our progress towards meeting these goals on the Portland Progress Dashboard

The dashboard home page shows six dials illustrating the progress of each individual theme. The dial status is representative of the average status (1 through 4) of all the action items within the theme:
