Mission and Values

The Oregon Department of Transportation began in 1913 when the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Highway Commission to "get Oregon out of the mud."

Today, we develop programs related to Oregon’s system of

  • highways, roads, and bridges;
  • railways;
  • public transportation services;
  • transportation safety programs;
  • driver and vehicle licensing;
  • and motor carrier regulation.
