City of Portland Transportation Commissioner Sam Adams recently concluded a series of Town Hall meetings to figure out a new way fund our transportation system.
As part of the Town Halls, attendees (around 600 total) were asked to fill out a survey to gauge their priorities on a variety of transportation-related issues.
Adams’ transportation staffer Roland Chlapowski just published some initial results from the 250 completed surveys and “Improving Bicycle Services and Infrastructure” came in near the bottom.
When asked about their top transportation priorities, respondents answered:
1. Improving Safety At Intersections
2. Pedestrian Safety/Crosswalks
3. Basic Road Maintenance
3. Paving Safety Near Schools (TIE)
5. Improving Public Transit Services
6. Environment/Reducing Pollution
7. Reducing Traffic Congestion
8. Improving Bicycle Services and Infrastructure
9. Constructing Sidewalks Where They Do Not Exist
10. Improving Unpaved/Gravel Roads
