the final OPTP and the new Executive Summary. Volume 2 of the OPTP contains the

OPTP Executive Summary
Volume 2: Interim Products Informing OPTP Development
Oregon has a new 2018 Oregon
Public Transportation Plan. The new OPTP provides a statewide vision for the public
transportation system and a policy foundation to assist state, regional, and
local transportation agencies in making decisions. The OPTP is one of several

The new vision for public
transportation in Oregon:
"In 2045, public
transportation is an integral, interconnected component of Oregon’s
transportation system that makes Oregon’s diverse cities, towns, and
communities work. Because public transportation is convenient, affordable, and
efficient, it helps further the state’s quality of life and economic vitality
and contributes to the health and safety of all residents, while reducing
greenhouse gas emissions."
Advice from stakeholders and the public helped to build the new
OPTP. A diverse Policy Advisory Committee,
or PAC, guided plan development and a Technical Advisory Committee,
or TAC, advised ODOT on specific topics. ODOT
consulted the public throughout, including online open houses and public events
held throughout the state after each of the three plan development milestones.
You can refer to the Public Involvement Summary
for a short summary of events. A full summary of the plan development process is
included as Appendix B in the OPTP Volume 1.
The OPTP provides a broad
work outline for public transportation activities. In the months after
adoption, ODOT will develop a more specific work plan for its early actions.
The work plan will build on the OPTP policies and strategies and work ODOT has
already begun. The plan will focus on the key initiatives and near term actions that ODOT can
take and identify implementation tasks that local and regional agencies can
