Equity and Safety in Metro’s Regional Transportation Plan

Equity and Safety in Metro’s Regional Transportation Plan

Portland has a national reputation as being one of the best cities for biking in the country. But while investments over the past several decades have been focused on downtown and affluent close-in neighborhoods, low-income communities and communities of color in the greater Portland region have been historically marginalized and underinvested for transportation. Our new case study examines how the region’s Regional Transportation Plan prioritized equity and safety, and our role in the process.
