About Vision Zero
Email updates

People in Portland deserve safe streets on which to walk, bike, operate mobility devices, access transit and drive. Through the Vision Zero program,
the City of Portland and our partners are working to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on our streets by 2025.

The Vision Zero Task Force is overseeing the creation of a Vision Zero Action Plan with specific steps to make streets safe. This plan will go to Portland's City Council for approval in October 2016.
