Metro has referred their long-awaited transportation measure to voters on the November 2020 ballot. Let’s Get Moving 2020 (Measure 26-218) represents the biggest investment in transit in a generation, and will mean Portland metro voters will get:
Comprehensive safety and commuting improvements for some of the region’s busiest and most dangerous traffic corridors, leading with racial equity and community stability goals;
An electric TriMet bus fleet, transitioning the state’s biggest diesel user to zero-emission transit buses powered by clean electricity; and
Safer air, climate, and communities: with additional programs to cut climate and air pollution, provide bike lanes and safe routes to schools, enhance public transit access and reliability, and alleviate traffic congestion, among other benefits throughout the greater Portland metropolitan area.
Let's Get Moving 2020 will create a better future for our region by providing safe, efficient and affordable transportation options, all while reducing climate pollution and addressing systemic inequities. That’s why Climate Solutions has endorsed this landmark campaign.
For 18 months, Metro worked with community leaders, local businesses, and the public to craft this plan, which will create thousands of family-wage jobs, jumpstarting our region's post-COVID-19 economic recovery efforts, and start building the transportation system that we need to thrive in the decades ahead.
