Technical Resource Center

Welcome to the Transit Technical Resource Center!

This site is designed to help Oregon’s transportation agencies find resources for training, transportation planning and information technology tools.

Here’s what we’re doing at the Technical Resource Center to help you. We:

  • Conduct technical research, document best practices and provide technical assistance.
  • Provide educational opportunities to transit agencies on existing and emerging transit technology.
  • Identify and pursue opportunities for shared solutions among transit agencies.
  • Assist transit agencies with developing transit plans that consider and integrate with other agencies’ plans.

At the Technical Resource Center, we’re guided by the Oregon Public Transportation Plan (OPTP) Executive Summary, ODOT’s 20-year plan that is helping us create and support a safe, efficient and seamless public transportation system for all Oregonians and visitors to our state. With the approval of the OPTP in 2018, we are now focused on three key initiatives which are reflected in the resources:

  1. Integrating public transportation plans with other agencies.
  2. Filling gaps in the statewide transit network.
  3. Expanding the use of public transportation technology.
