Speak Up for Transportation Options in Oregon!

If you are like us, you are deeply concerned about transportation options for your community. Please join us in attending public hearings with Oregon Legislature’s Joint Transportation Committee. Why does your community need more transit options, safer routes to school and less air pollution? You can make a difference when you share your transportation story. Together we can send a clear message to our lawmakers: Oregonians deserve modern transportation systems that provide more options for all of us—with well-maintained roads and bridges, convenient public transportation, and safe paths to walk and bike.‪
