Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030

The Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 was adopted unanimously by Portland’s City Council on February 11, 2010.  The following key principles informed the plan:

  • Attract new riders
  • Strengthen bicycle policies
  • Form a denser bikeway network
  • Increase bicycle parking
  • Expand programs to support bicycling
  • Increase funding for bicycle facilities

The Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 was created with the understanding that bicycling creates safer streets, reduces the causes of global climate change, promotes a healthy environment, and limits the effects and health care costs related to inactivity.  It provides equity and access to viable, affordable transportation options and creates fun, vibrant, and livable neighborhoods.  It supports Portland’s economy and is a sound investment.
