The Big Jump: Portland’s effort to triple bike ridership in Gateway by 2019
Presented by Timur Ender, JD, Special Projects Manager,PBOT Active Transportation and Safety Division
Portland was recently selected as 1 of 10 focus cities with the goal of developing best practices for bikeway network design. This nationwide competition sponsored by People for Bikes is called the “Big Jump Project”.
Portland’s proposal, titled “Gateway to Opportunity” focuses on tripling bicycle ridership in the Gateway District by combining infrastructure investment with direct outreach to residents. Come learn about how we plan to increase ridership in Gateway and bring your own suggestions for what actions PBOT could take over the next few years to leverage this investment!
