Now through Feb. 17, tell leaders what or how you would focus investments in our transportation system.

We all use our system of throughways, roads, bridges, sidewalks, bikeways, and transit and freight routes. So, we should all get a say in how we create a transportation system that is safe, healthy, reliable and affordable. Regional leaders want to know how you would prioritize the next 20 years of transportation investments.

The Oregon Legislature's state transportation funding plan invests in cleaner, healthier transportation options for Oregonians, including ongoing dedicated funding for Safe Routes to School. Since the passage of HB 2017 last July, the Oregon Transportation Commission and Oregon Department of Transportation have been busy getting ready to invest this new transportation revenue, including improvements to how Safe Routes to School funding is spent in Oregon.

We’re beyond pleased to announce that the 2017 Oregon Legislature passed a state transportation funding plan that invests in a cleaner, healthier transportation system to provide safer options for Oregonians, however they travel.

Provide input on Safe Routes to School in March & April to have your say

Fixing Our Streets is a locally-funded street repair and traffic safety initiative that will bring much needed street improvement and safety projects to neighborhoods across Portland. It is expected to provide approximately $8 million for school neighborhood improvements along walking and biking routes to school — around $500,000 dedicated to each High School cluster (including the elementary and middle schools that feed into a particular high school).

Public transportation connects many communities in Oregon, provides options for travelers, and often serves as the only way for people to get where they need to go. The Oregon Public Transportation Plan (OPTP) will provide a statewide vision and policy foundation for decisions about public transportation in and between Oregon communities. This plan will not identify projects or local investments, but it will set priorities and policies to guide future decisions and investments by state and local agencies.
