Public transportation connects many communities in Oregon, provides options for travelers, and often serves as the only way for people to get where they need to go. The Oregon Public Transportation Plan (OPTP) will provide a statewide vision and policy foundation for decisions about public transportation in and between Oregon communities. This plan will not identify projects or local investments, but it will set priorities and policies to guide future decisions and investments by state and local agencies. Access a printable OPTP factsheet here and information about public involvement here.
