Streetcar System Concept Plan
The Portland Streetcar System Concept Plan identifies potential future streetcar corridors that are intended to build upon the existing streetcar system and expand service in a way that best serve Portland’s neighborhoods and business districts. This map identifies those corridors that represent the best opportunities for potential streetcar corridors. The proposed corridors are identified as either “Concept Corridors”, which are relatively near-term possibilities; or as “Comprehensive Plan Corridors”, which would require significantly more planning and are longer-term possibilities.

Regional High Capacity Transit
Metro’s High Capacity Transit System Plan establishes priorities to guide future regional investments in light rail, commuter rail, bus rapid transit and rapid streetcar. The plan calls for a focus on three new transit corridors for investment in the near-term, including two within Portland: the corridor in the vicinity of Powell Boulevard, connecting Gresham to downtown Portland, and the corridor in the vicinity of Barbur Boulevard/Highway 99, connecting downtown Portland to Tigard.
