Yard Sign Lender Program

The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation has yard signs available to lend to community members.

Each yard sign features an 18”h x 24”w sign in corrugated plastic (FREE with 6 Vision Zero Safety Pledge Form signatures) or aluminum ($25 deposit required, deposit refunded if the yard sign is returned in good condition within 1 year). The Bureau of Transportation yard signs are portable and suitable for quick and easy display by residents in their yard. Signs should be brought indoors each evening, if possible, to minimize vandalism.
