Advancing policies and investments to improve the air we breathe, keep families safer, support outdoor activity, reduce carbon emissions, and help connect people to jobs and critical services.
Our Streets (2021-22)
We want #OurStreets to be safe, accessible, equitable, and low carbon.
In the coming year, The Street Trust will advance policies and investments in #OurStreets to improve the air we breathe, keep families safer, support outdoor activity, reduce carbon emissions, and help connect people to jobs and critical services.
This is transportation justice in action.
SB 395 (2021)
We convened the Safe Routes for All Coalition for the 2021 Oregon Legislative Session to pass SB 395, to expand investments improve accessibility and safety statewide for road users by increasing the share of state highway funds invested in walking and biking from 1% to 5%.
Get Moving (2020)
In 2017, The Street Trust invested heavily in co-founding the Getting There Together Coalition with the generous support of the Bullitt and Oregon Community Foundations and Meyer Memorial Trust. By 2019-2020, #TST was a fully engaged member of the task force advising Metro Council on the regional transportation investment measure.
