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