Transit Development Plan
Washington County's Transit Development Plan identifies investment priorities for the upcoming biennium, as well as longer-term priorities.
Our plan, adopted in 2021, meets the Oregon Department of Transportation Statewide Transportation Improvement Funds (STIF) eligibility requirements.
- Increased frequency of bus service to areas with a high percentage of low-income households.
- Expansion of bus routes and bus services to serve areas with a high percentage of low-income households.
- Fund the implementation of programs to reduce fares for public transportation in communities with a high percentage of low-income households.
- Procurement of low- or no-emission vehicles.
- Improvement in the frequency and reliability of service between communities inside and outside TriMet and South Metro Area Regional Transit (SMART) service areas.
- Coordination between service providers to reduce fragmentation in the provision of transportation services.
- Implementation of programs to provide transit service for students in grades 9-12.
Per Keep Oregon Moving (HB 2017), our proposal must be included in the TriMet Tri-county Public Transportation Improvement Plan for the three-county Metro area and approved by the TriMet HB 2017 Transit Advisory Committee, the TriMet Board of Directors and the Oregon Transportation Commission.
