Powell-Division Bus Rapid Transit

BRT

Metro is working on a new kind of transit to bring a more rapid, reliable service to both Portland and Gresham. This project will be the region’s first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system of its kind.

We envision a complete corridor where pedestrians and bicyclists can access transit safely and conveniently along the entire corridor. Today, the BRT corridor is currently one of the busiest transit corridors and is central to some of the region’s most diverse neighborhoods.

The Powell-Division Transit Project can be a transformative project for the neighborhoods through which it will pass. We want to make sure that these communities continue to thrive, and want to see a project that does not create or increase involuntary displacement throughout these neighborhoods. We envision a project that provides dedicated bus lanes for fast, reliable services to communities it seeks to serve as well as physically protected bike lanes and pedestrian safety improvements throughout the entire corridor.

 

STATUS Over the last few months we have been meeting with steering committee members from the Powell- Division Project and partners to discuss ways this project can bring fast and reliable transit service without displacing communities it seeks to serve. We are also advocating for the inclusion of pedestrian safety and physically protected bike lanes throughout the entire corridor.
