Getting There Together Welcomes the New Metro Council

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

We are proud to be founding members of the Getting There Together Coalition. Our coalition recently submitted a letter with 20 regional partners to the incoming Metro Council of the greater Portland region, urging that they prioritize equitable transportation in the region when they look at transportation financing measures.

Our coalition advocates for funding allocations that advance the region’s goals of racial equity, climate smart solutions, and zero deaths on our roadways by:

  • providing people reliable options in how they get around;
  • empowering working people to get to jobs by completing connected transit and active transportation networks;
  • ensuring all the region’s residents prosper from an equitable, sustainable, and climate-smart investment in our future transportation system.

Read our full letter and stay tuned for more information on this growing coalition and efforts at Metro to build a transportation funding package for the region.
