What Needs to Change?

Over the next four or five years, what should the tri-county area do to make bicycling safer and more inviting?

Portland’s Bike Plan for 2030 has a tremendous list of ambitious projects that would improve bicycling in the city of Portland. It’s a great long-term City of Portland plan but we need a plan-of-attack for the entire tri-county Metro area — a plan that helps us prioritize the next few years worth of advocacy work. We are currently updating our Blueprint for Better Biking to serve that important role and we need your input.

In 2005, we heard loud and clear that N/NE Portland needed major east-west bike boulevards, that low traffic neighborhood routes were in-demand citywide, and that the Sellwood Bridge was a huge barrier.

What are your top 3 picks for projects that need to happen in the next few years — projects sure to improve safety and increase ridership?

In a few weeks, the BTA will be hosting input sessions in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties. Please join us!

(Updated: all meetings are scheduled for 6-8pm.)

If you can’t attend an input session, visit our website for other means of input.

    What time is the Oregon City meeting?

    I don’t know if I’ll attend a meeting (I try to save what time I have for my 10-year-old son). My biggest commute concern is northbound Front Ave/Naito Parkway from around SW Gibbs to the Hawthorne Bridge – there’s no bike lane and little room for bicyclists, and currently the Trimet Bridge construction is adding to the squeeze.
