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.  

The community, transit providers and partners collaborated to create the Transit Development Plan,  that aligns with Keep Oregon Moving (HB 2017) funding criteria:

  1. Increased frequency of bus service to areas with a high percentage of low-income households.
     
  2. Expansion of bus routes and bus services to serve areas with a high percentage of low-income households.
     
  3. Fund the implementation of programs to reduce fares for public transportation in communities with a high percentage of low-income households.
     
  4. Procurement of low- or no-emission vehicles.
     
  5. Improvement in the frequency and reliability of service between communities inside and outside TriMet and South Metro Area Regional Transit (SMART) service areas.
     
  6. Coordination between service providers to reduce fragmentation in the provision of transportation services.
     
  7. 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.
