Should the City extend Portland Streetcar or new transit in NW or NE Portland? What kind of new development do you envision in these places? Affordable Housing? Commercial and Retail? Industrial Uses? New Offices? Something else?

The Montgomery Park to Hollywood Transit and Land Use Development Strategy (MP2H) is considering equitable development plans for transit-oriented districts in NW Portland and NE Portland. The MP2H Urban Design Concepts provide information on possible land use Development Scenarios for the NW study area, and possible streetcar/transit Alignment Alternatives for the NE study area.

Help us shape the future of land use and transit that better serves these major destinations!

This Pride Month--and in conjunction with the celebration of Juneteenth--Portland Streetcar has added a Progress Pride Flag to Car 023 as a moving symbol of our commitment to inclusion and supporting both Portland's queer community and communities of color.


The flag, which sports the traditional six colors of the Pride Flag, was designed by Portland artist Daniel Quasar and adds a hoist of five half-sized stripes representing trans and non-binary individuals (light blue, light pink, white), marginalized POC communities (brown, black), as well as those living with AIDS and the stigma and prejudice surrounding them, and those who have been lost to the disease (black).

As a result of Governor Kate Brown's statewide "Stay Home, Save Lives" order issued Monday, March 23, Portland Streetcar will reduce regular weekday service to every 20 minutes between about 5:30 a.m. through about 11:30 p.m.

This change reflects a natural drop in ridership following guidelines around social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, and the adjusted schedule will allow us to provide adequate sick leave and protective measures for our operators, mechanics and other employees while ensuring reliable service without gaps in staffing.

We continue to ask that riders practice social distancing while riding, meaning providing at least six feet between riders at stops and on board. For continuing updates on Oregon's response to COVID-19, visit the Oregon Health Authority.

We are encouraging all of our riders and employees to do what they can to stay safe during the continued period of recommended "stay home, stay healthy" practices. We also serve multiple hospitals and many vital businesses and services in Portland, so we will continue to operate regular service.

Governor Kate Brown has issued a statewide "stay at home" order to prevent further spread of COVID-19, so we ask that riders avoid unnecessary trips to help give others the space they need to ride safely.

Right now, social distancing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. On transit and in public, please keep at least six feet between you and other riders. Our operators will be driving with their cab doors closed to help maximize the benefits of distancing.
