Oregon Public Transportation Plan (OPTP) provides the statewide policy framework to guide local, regional, and state public transportation investment decisions for the next 20 years. ODOT’s focus is to help agencies move forward with the implementation of the OPTP, which provides a broad work outline for public transportation activities.
This plan acknowledges the changes and trends that will occur over the next two decades (i.e., population growth, new transportation technologies, etc.) and provides a long-term vision for how we create and support a safe, efficient and seamless public transportation system for all Oregonians and visitors to our state. The three key initiatives are:
Public Transportation Plan Integration - Integrating public transportation plans with other agencies.
Regional and Intercity Service - Filling gaps in the statewide transit network.
Public Transportation Technology - Expanding the use of public transportation technologies.
Working together is critical to achieving the vision and goals of the OPTP. Local and regional agencies are responsible for understanding and planning for transportation and land use priorities of their constituencies.
