Central City in Motion is PBOT's effort to plan, prioritize, and implement transportation improvements in the city’s core. Eighteen projects are under consideration. They include new pedestrian crossings, bus lanes, and bikeways.

PBOT is currently seeking 18 new advisory committee members to advise on the implementation of the Central City in Motion plan as part of the Central City in Motion Working Group.

The Central City in Motion Working Group is charged with ensuring the successful implementation of Central City in Motion projects, advising the Director of the Portland Bureau of Transportation and Project staff on project design and monitoring performance.

The Working Group will advise the project team and Bureau Director on the following:

  • Provide input on priorities for project design and construction
  • Connect the project team with key stakeholders and community representatives and identify opportunities for public engagement on project design
  • Identify opportunities for the private sector to leverage public investments

CCIM Infographic

A cultural and economic hub for the state, Portland’s Central City is growing rapidly. By 2035, the Central City’s population is projected to triple and the number of jobs area will increase by 40 percent. As the Central City and our economy grows, more people and businesses are using our existing streets, sidewalks and transit systems.

To accommodate more users on our existing street system in a way that provides affordable transportation options, we need to invest in the Central City’s transportation network. Central City in Motion is Portland’s plan for strategic investments in our streets to create a smart, 21st century transportation system in the Central City. Our goal is to make the entire street system work better, providing more predictable travel times for businesses and residents.
