Destination Tomorrow 2010

Destination Tommorow report cover imageDestination Tomorrow - the 2010-2035 Regional Long-range Transportation Plan for the urbanized area of Portland - is a comprehensive plan outlining policies and strategies for maintaining the best of the existing transportation system and transforming the system to safely and efficiently accommodate all modes. The emphasis is on balancing the system among the many transportation modes: motorized vehicles, non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles, rail and bus transit, and pedestrians, while utilizing transportation demand/systems management techniques and technologies to improve mobility for all modes.
