Streetcar System Concept Plan
(The following description is excerpted from the City of Portland's web site.)
The Streetcar System Concept Plan (SSCP) is a 20 to 50 year long range planning study that will identify transit corridors in the City of Portland with the highest potential for more detailed analysis in the future.
The Bureau of Transportation and the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, coordinating with Metro, TriMet, and other City bureaus will use this study to look at how transit infrastructure investments can work with pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use development projects to create more walkable and sustainable neighborhoods.
The goal of the SSCP is to identify an interconnected citywide system of streetcar corridors integrated with the City's transportation and land use network. The Portland Streetcar System Concept Plan can play a key role in shaping the City by:
- Reinforcing walkable and economically diverse neighborhoods and vibrant main streets
- Encouraging sustainable and equitable development and infrastructure
- Supporting reduction of vehicle trips
- Supporting greater accessibility, housing options, employment, and economic development
