Rose Lane Project

Don't miss out! Share you thoughts about the Rose Lane Vision by Dec 16th

Don’t miss out!
Share your thoughts about the Rose Lane Vision by Dec. 16

(Dec. 6, 2019) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is gathering feedback on the Rose Lane Project, a new effort exploring how we can get buses and streetcar trains out of traffic. Portlanders can share their thoughts at two upcoming open houses on Dec. 7 and Dec. 9 or online at by Dec. 16. 

Attend one of our two remaining open houses
There are two more chances to speak with staff at in-person open houses. At the events, you can learn about the project and share feedback on various locations that are potential candidates for piloting transit-priority projects near-term (2020-2021) and a broader concept vision.
• Saturday, Dec. 7, 2–4 p.m., North Portland Library Community Room (512 N Killingsworth St.)
• Monday, Dec. 9, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., White Stag Building (70 NW Couch St.)
Refreshments and activities for kids will be provided.
To request translation, interpretation, modifications, accommodations, or other auxiliary aids or services, contact (503) 823-5291, Relay: 711.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Can’t make it in person? Take our online survey!
PBOT is also hosting an online survey to gather feedback about the project. The survey, which closes on Dec. 16, takes about 10 minutes to complete and includes links to the open house materials.

About the Rose Lane Project
Through the Rose Lane Project, PBOT is helping to create a network of transit routes across Portland that are faster, frequent and full. Over the next several months, PBOT is working to:
• Develop a bundle of Rose Lane pilot projects with transit priority that will be deployed in 2020 and 2021. These projects will be deployed using temporary materials such as striping, signage, paint and posts.
• Identify a Rose Lane network vision for a broader Enhanced Transit Priority network, that includes locations being built through other projects and programs. This vision may include near-term projects as well as long-term projects that are phased in over time.
• Develop a Rose Lane identity that is visual and memorable and which can be applied along the Rose Lane network to promote riding transit.
• Work in partnership with TriMet to leverage service improvements and other rider benefits in support of the Rose Lane network.

Commissioner Chloe Eudaly initiated this effort with PBOT. With her leadership, PBOT anticipates presenting a project proposal to City Council for adoption in February 2020. Learn more on the Rose Lane Project webpage.
