Phone: Fax: Vision Zero was adopted unanimously by Portland City Council in with the goal of eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries on Portland streets in a way that is equitable, able, and data-driven. But what does it mean to be data-driven? And should we stop there? Explore the datasets used in Vision Zero implementation and the challenges that come with them.
Learn about the projects where creativity and innovation play a critical role by stretching beyond what is traditionally thought of as transportation safety, including automated enforcement and citywide crash analysis.
To find the archived slides and video of tthe webinar. Portland was one of 10 cities chosen to participate in the Big Jump Project of People for Bikeswith efforts focused in the Gateway District. In addition to several bikeway projects, PBOT arranged for an education component.
This session discussed an exploratory educational model and the ways the project can increase accessibility and opportunity for the youth living and learning in the Gateway neighborhoods.
He as been with the organization for 11 years. He has worked in bicycle education since and is committed to working with the community to create a more equitable and multicultural approach to bicycle education. Project staff discuss how projects were identified and trade-offs weighed, discuss the benefits to transit riders and the region including benefits for our climate goals, and share the most recent des, with a focus on the approaches to the Hawthorne, Steel and Burnside bridges. The planning process identifies community needs but often needs the creative use of financial leverage to make those projects a reality on the ground.
Timing is important on LIDs, and the window of opportunity is often short. For Portland's Bureau of Transportation, managing the public's desire for streets in good condition with room to walk and bike safely and accommodating freight movement and population growth can be a tall order. Add in the need to work with water, sewer and underground utilities, and things get complicated. When needs exceed resources, smart strategies can help fill the gap. Most importantly, he describes how creative problem-solving and careful negotiation can successfully achieve commitments to fund the projects and improve neighborhoods.
Pedestrian safety and access is an equity issue. In Portland, inadequate pedestrian infrastructure and traffic safety concerns disproportionately impact low-income communities and people of color. PedPDX prioritizes sidewalk and crossing improvements and other investments, policies, strategies and tools to make walking safer and more comfortable across the city. Learn about the strategies PedPDX is using to address transportation equity in Portland, including establishing a data-based prioritization for citywide pedestrian investments, identifying roadway and behavioral characteristics most closely correlated with pedestrian crashes in order to prioritize needs before crashes happen, using pro-active outreach to engage disproportionately impacted residents, and applying innovative pedestrian de and policies to address pedestrian infrastructure needs.
Portland's E-Scooter Pilot made national news for its proactive and data-driven approach to exploring the role of e-scooters in our transportation system. One of the first cities to implement a comprehensive data sharing agreement with e-scooter providers, Portland now has a lot of findings to share. This Friday Seminar dives into South Portland eyed lady and her fast bike the data collected and the experiences of Portlanders during the pilot. Presenters discuss what worked well, unexpected findings, and considerations for future new mobility pilots.

Thursday, November 15, As quadrants go, Northwest Portland is like the sun — dense, shiny and hard for people to bike through. But not for long! Our speakers will cover :. View the slides for the NW in Motion effort. End-of-trip facilities, like bicycle parking, are a key component to support the use of bicycles for transportation. The Portland Bicycle Plan calls for bicycling to for 25 percent of all trips by And you can also see and hear project staff's presentation and answers to questions in the files linked below.
Already home to the densest concentration of people and jobs in Oregon, our Central City is expected to have an additional 51, new jobs and 38, new households by Building off the Central City plan, the project will provide a roadmap for the next years of investments in bus lanes, low stress and protected bikeways, and safer crossings.
In June, thousands of Portlanders weighed in on a host of proposed bus lanes, bike lanes, and pedestrian crossings at www. Gabe talked about what staff has heard to date, which projects South Portland eyed lady and her fast bike rising to the top, and how to get involved.
Portland has ambitious goals for increasing the of trips made by bike. But we still have a transportation system built primarily for motor vehicles. How can it be done quickly, broadly and affordably? What will be the impacts to on-street parking and other curb access needs? A stakeholder advisory committee has been meeting since February and is getting close to finalizing their set of recommendations for the code update, based on best practices from other cities, current practice from developers in Portland, and with an eye to the City's active transportation goals.
The City of Portland envisions a vibrant city, where 25 percent of all trips are made using a bicycle. To reach this goal, the City will need to build a connected and safe network of bicycle infrastructure.
However, the journey does not end when someone riding a bicycle leaves the road. End-of-trip facilities, including a place to safely and securely park a bicycle, are a key component of creating an attractive and functional bicycling network. The current Bicycle Parking code requirements were largely written and adopted 20 years ago. Since then the share of people biking to work in Portland has quadrupled - from 1.
Learn about the code changes recommended to meet Portlanders' current and future needs for travel by bike:. The Green Loop is for people — a welcoming space for 8 to 80 year old riders and accommodating all abilities.
We need reliable and safe ways to move people in and out of the urban core. Memberships are earned by participating in a bike safety education workshop. Vision Zero aims to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries on our streets, and Portland has committed to doing so in a way that supports traditionally under-served communities.
This presentation by Vision Zero Action Plan project manager Clay Veka outlined how Portland has woven a strong commitment to equity into the development and implementation of the Plan. Portland was recently selected as 1 of 10 focus cities with the goal of developing best practices for bikeway network de.
This presentation, with a lively question-and-answer period, explored how we plan to increase ridership in Gateway and discussed what actions PBOT could take over the next few years to leverage this investment. about the Gateway to Opportunity in this People for Bikes post. Presented by. Art, John and Kiel had a fun, wide-ranging conversation exploring how biking became central to this globally-recognized landmark. Come learn about exciting bikeshare trends on technology, equity, and outreach. Will these trends help bring new people to biking?
What could it could mean for Portland? The Central City Multimodal Project seeks to make it easier to bike, walk and access transit in the Central City as it grows. Learn about the project, the Central City plan which serves as its backbone, and progress to date. Take the early-input survey to help us learn how people travel around the Central City and ways we can improve it.
Your feedback will help to guide our planning work for the project. Thank you for taking the time! Portland's street network is the largest publically-owned open space in the city. Since the founding of the city people used this space for movement, commerce, recreation and community connection.
Sometime in the first half of the 20th century, however, policy and perceptions shifted to prioritize the space almost exclusively for movement and storage of motor vehicles. In the 21st century the City and its residents are looking to support a healthy balance of uses for our public right-of-way. This session covered experiments in tactical urbanism, Open Streets events and the International Open Streets Summit that Portland will host August 18th to 21st register here. Since Portland SmartTrips has provided active transportation information to over 73, new mover households.
Capitalizing on an influential time when movers are already in a state of change, SmartTrips encourages new movers to consider all of their transportation options. As a result, program participants report they are walking, biking, and taking transit more than prior to moving.
Download the slides and audio for a rich storytelling event told through data, charts, and travel behavior analysis. She is one of three bicycle delivery staffers and is also responsible for conducting travel surveys and data analysis, as well as overseeing the Active Transportation Ambassadors and outreach program. Five open houses were scheduled, including this one at the Bicycle Lunch and Learn.
You can find maps, the methodology for station site selection and other information presented at the Open House by clicking here. The plan will provide transportation options for residents, employees, visitors, and firms doing business in Portland, making it more convenient to walk, bike, take transit -- and drive less -- while meeting their daily needs.
The TSP provides a balanced transportation system to support neighborhood livability and economic development. Not another dry presentation of a technical document, Art discussed how the TSP will help Portland maintain livability and sustainability as the city grows and evolves. The group takes transportation ideas from long-range planning and policy realms, through project development all the way to construction.
Ride Report is a new app that allows Portlanders to log their biking experiences and help improve bike infrastructure. The Ride Report app can detect when users are biking, and logs trips of any length automatically. It also lets users rate the trip with a single tap. Ride Report is creating open source traffic and safety data that can be used to help other riders, as well as advocates and planners. This talk explained how the app works and showed some of the early analytics tools Knock Software has created around the data.
Prior to this, William led the team that created the Square payment app and worked on Mac and iPhone apps at Apple. He graduated from Reed College with a degree in Mathematics. But how have 30 years of traffic patterns, development, population growth, and engineering practices changed these bikeways and how people use them?
From pavement conditions to automobile speeds to street paintings, the report takes a broad look and proposes a of changes for how the system should operate.
ABC's Mission is to unite the community with activities and events to spread awareness about the benefits of cycling. ABC also works to inform and support the community regarding pedestrian and cycling safety, and infrastructure issues. Portugal and Ms. Llanos talked about the tools used to engage the Latin American community, actions to keep people motivated, and ABC's efforts to raise the visibility and voices of community members on issues of transportation safety and accessibility.
Thurs, June 18th:. Portland's Safe Routes to School program has expanded its offerings to older students. Middle school is an important time to foster independence in children while maintaining and strengthening active transportation habits formed during elementary school years.
Check the slides for great charts and data about travel behavior and information on what was learned in working with 6 to 8th graders. In particular, there is scant information regarding bicyclist routes origin-destination and the perception of users regarding the adequacy of existing bicycle facilities. A smartphone app can be used to collect new and better cyclist data in a cost-effective way. Figliozzi presented on the development of the app and some preliminary that have been collected.
The Bicycle Lunch and Learn was honored to have four women who pioneered in bike activism, industry, advocacy and policy tell their stories. This session featured lots of great Portland history including: the story of the first Neighborhood Greenway Bike Boulevards, we called them back then - instigated by neighborhood activists; life as "that one guy on a bike" and one of a handful of women bike shop managers in the country; what it took to do bike outreach in the 90s slide projector? Less than half of ODOT's highways in urban areas currently have sidewalks and bike lanes.
The Oregon Transportation Plan sets a goal of completing the state biking and walking network bybut adequate funding is not available to meet this target. ODOT Region 1 is developing an Active Transportation Needs Inventory to assess gaps in the existing system and strategically identify future projects that provide the greatest benefits for all users.

The town of Davis, California has a complex story of successes and failures in its 50 years of efforts to build a city for bicycles. From a bicycle paradise in the s to a fading star in the s, to a current resurgence in bicycling and advocacy. In this talk Ted describes the history and analyzes how advocacy, policy, politics and engineering interacted to shape successes and failures over time.
Ted wrote his masters thesis on the history of bicycle advocacy in Davis in and was the founder of the advocacy group "Davis Bicycles! There are big barriers to taking one's first step into the world of transportation advocacy. People whose voices most need to be heard often experience ificant obstacles to advocacy just because the process can be so obscure.
The Community Cycling Center worked to figure out what it would take to demystify transportation funding, budgets, and processes so that anyone can participate. Together with volunteers from Code for Portlandthey built a tool that makes make city budgets, citizen reporting, and community meetings accessible to people from all backgrounds.
For a look at the creative process, read the CCC's blog post about the volunteer Hackathon to develop the tool. Lillian's presentation gave a sneak peek at "Avenues to Advocacy" before its release in The Active Transportation Division recently received new leadership and a new place in the Bureau of Transportation.South Portland eyed lady and her fast bike
