(PORTLAND, OR) – The City of Portland has a national reputation for an innovative transportation system. We have excellent bus service, a popular and expanding light rail system, an envied network of bike routes, and the beginnings of a world-class streetcar system.

In October, the City of Portland Office of Transportation will kick off a ten-month planning process to create a Streetcar System Plan, which will identify corridors for future streetcar development.

Join the Office of Transportation at three Open Houses to kick off the planning process for the Streetcar System Plan and see Transportation’s new Primary Transit Network map (PTN). The PTN study identifies current transit corridors (bus, light rail, streetcar) as well as corridors that may require future transit and land use infrastructure investments. This study is one of the initial planning tools for the Streetcar System Plan.

Get involved in Portland’s streetcar future!
