Active Transportation Plan
Helping people get where they need to go safely and efficiently is a top priority for the City of Beaverton. The Active Transportation Plan is a long-range plan that makes Beaverton a better place for people traveling by bicycle, on foot, by wheelchair or mobility device, or accessing public transit.
The Plan promotes walking and biking in Beaverton and helps set the foundation for developing well-connected, attractive bike and pedestrian networks that are safe, convenient and user-friendly for people of all ages and abilities, whatever mode of transportation people use. The focus is on creating active transportation opportunities to get people where they need to go—work, school, appointments and activities.
Beaverton City Council adopted the Active Transportation Plan in February 2018, directing staff to proceed with implementation. The main objectives of the Plan are to:
- Enhance safe opportunities for walking, biking, and taking transit, in ways that connect people to the destinations they need to reach: schools, employment centers, transit, and other community destinations.
- Ensure that all neighborhoods in Beaverton have options for walking, biking, and transit.
- Reduce climate-changing emissions.
- Create a network of bicycle boulevards / neighborhood greenways to provide low-stress routes for all ages and abilities of bicyclists and pedestrians.
- Improve safety for all modes.
- Set up Beaverton transportation projects to be competitive for grants and regional funding opportunities.
