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.
The Rose Lane Project effort grew from recommendations in the City’s Enhanced Transit Corridors (ETC) Plan, adopted by City Council in June 2018. The Rose Lane Project will help advance implementation of the initial Enhanced Transit Network identified in the ETC plan.

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.
