  • ODOT's Active Transportation Section
    AT Photo
    The Active Transportation Section supports sustainable, multimodal transportation solutions that connect people to where they need to go - such as work, school and to access essential services using "active" modes such as walking, bicycling, and taking public transit. At the Oregon Department of Transportation, it means that and more: active transportation includes strategically investing in infrastructure in response to community and user needs.
    Our mission is to strategically integrate program and funding sources to promote multimodal and sustainable transportation solutions.

    CNG Vehicle
    A program aimed at encouraging the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel has $4 million to award to qualifying projects in Oregon. Managed by the Oregon Department of Transportation with support from the Oregon Department of Energy, the program uses funds from the federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality program (CMAQ). Funding will be directed towards projects that support the installation of natural gas fueling stations. Applications are due April 18. Complete information, including project requirements, is available on the CMAQ website.

    All public and private entities and Tribal governments are eligible to apply for the funds. Projects must meet certain requirements to be eligible, such as matching funds, and applications will be evaluated on several criteria, such as degree of readiness (see complete eligibility requirements, criteria and timelines).
