Transportation Climate Actions in Oregon

Here are a selection of the climate actions in the Transportation Solution Area going on now in Oregon.

Get There Oregon (https://getthereoregon.org/) offers the Get There Tool to let you compare travel options, find carpool partners, and track stats like reduced carbon emissions, money saved, and calories burned.

Public Transportation

Transit provides value to our communities in terms of reducing carbon emissions. Public transit agencies operate across the state; below are the two largest. Get on the BUS!

LTD (https://www.ltd.org/sustainability-at-ltd/) seeks to connect its community and provide transportation options; the agency has recently conducted a carbon footprint analysis and initiated a Fleet Procurement Plan. [Eugene/Springfield]

TriMet (https://trimet.orgprovides bus, light rail and commuter rail service in the Portland area, connecting people with their community while easing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution—making our region a better place to live. [Portland metro]

Active Transportation
