Accelerate and build projects for walking, biking, and taking transit while simultaneously planning for what this growing city needs in the future.
- Build new high-priority pedestrian crossings and sidewalks.
- Increase investments in transportation facilities for walking, biking, and taking transit.
- Build a protected bikeway system in the central city that connects to the broader bike network.
- Fund and build major transit lines and trail corridors in partnership with other agencies, including the new Southwest Corridor light rail and the Division Transit Project.
- Leverage state investments to maximize benefits for Portlanders, such as projects along outer SE Powell Boulevard and 82nd Avenue in East Portland.
- Utilize “quick-build” projects that allow us to respond to community safety and livability concerns while simultaneously encouraging active trips on neighborhood streets.
- Develop specific plans for high-need, high-growth centers, especially in East Portland, that will increase safe, and convenient options for underserved communities.
- Accelerate the conversion to electric vehicles.
