PBOT Lunch and Learn series


The PBOT Lunch and Learn Series at the TREC Friday Seminar


PLEASE NOTE: Until further notice the Lunch and Learns will be presented online only. 



Friday, May 15th, 2020;   11:30am - 12:30pm PDT

Safe speeds save lives: How Portland is managing speeds for safety

presented by Matt Kelly, Vision Zero Specialist , Portland Bureau of Transportation

Speed is a key factor in how people experience Portland’s streets. Appropriate speeds help prevent crashes, reduce the harmful consequences of crashes, and can help streets become more comfortable and sociable spaces that support a variety of travel modes and uses. The Portland Bureau of Transportation will share information on how the City of Portland is supporting safe travel speeds through its Vision Zero work. Topics will include the left turn calming pilot project, speed safety cameras, speed limit reductions, and road reorganizations. Data on the results of these interventions will be shared, along with discussion of next steps for helping people travel at safe speeds in Portland.

What's up with the  PBOT Bike Lunch and Learn?

We are expanding our scope to explore a variety of Active Transportation topics and partnering with the Friday Transportation Seminar hosted by PSU’s Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC).

What’s staying the same? 
- Thoughtful and engaging presentations, every other month, highlighting the work of PBOT and our partners around programs, projects and issues for sustainable travel.

What’s changing?
- The time – presentations will be from 11:30 to 12:30
- The dates – we’re breaking out of the “Third Thursday” confines. We’ll be moving to Fridays, and we’ll be hosting about every other month.
- More access –  log-in to watch and participate online. If you miss a session, you can view the video or download the slides from the TREC archive.

We’re excited about the new partnership and look forward to seeing you online!

Sign up here to join the PBOT Lunch and Learn mailing list - only one or two e-mails a month, and we don't share your info.
