Downtown Portland

The east side of Portland generally has a robust network of streets safe for bicycling. Even the bridges across the Willamette are increasingly comfortable for people riding bicycles. At the west ends of those bridges, however, bicycle facilities disappear. In downtown Portland – the region’s primary travel destination – the streets are busy, and there is little physically protected space for bicycles. With its high density and limited parking, downtown Portland cannot afford to be an intimidating place to ride a bike. To match the safety and comfort levels of the east side’s network, significant changes must be made to downtown’s traffic signals and streetscape (including bus islands) to ensure safe pedestrian and transit access and physically separated bike lanes.

CALL TO ACTION: Please sign our petition to support and push forward improving bicycling infrastructure in Downtown Portland (feel free to send this page link to friends and family who want to see the same improvements).

STATUS: The Street Trust is working with civic, business, and elected leaders to build support for new protected bike lanes downtown. During the summer of 2013, we successfully advocated for $6.6 million in federal funding for the project. Our current focus is building additional support for new protected bike lanes running north and south through the most central part of the business district.
