    • Agency Overview• Portland metropolitan region• Service area of 570 square miles• Population of 1.5 million• 52 mile MAX light rail• 79 bus lines – 13 frequent service• 14.7 mile WES Commuter Rail• Over 102 million trips in FY 2012• Most riders (84%) are choice riders
    • Active Transportation Programtrimet.org/bike trimet.org/walk
    • Active Transportation ProgramBike to Transit:• Bike parking at stations• On-board vehicle capacity• Expand the reach of transit• First and last mile solutionsWalk to Transit:• Partnerships are key• Pedestrian Network Analysis• Funding opportunities• Success stories• Challenges that remain
    • Bike on Bus, 2 per rack, all buses(About 600 active service buses)Bike racks at most stations andsome bus stops (lots)Reserved, keyed bike lockers (450)and on-demand elockers (28)Bike & Rides (3)
    • All buses in the system, 2 per rackBike on Bus
    • Allowed system wideBike on MAX and WES
    • Bike on MAX and WES
    • All rail stations, some bus stopsBike Racks
    • $25 per 6 monthsReserved Bike Lockers
    • On-demand, 5 cents per hourElectronic Bike Lockers
    • Secure and enclosedBike & Rides
    • Future of Bike Access to Transit• More people living in the region? Yes• Within biking distance of transit? Yes• More bikes on the road? Yes• More capacity on-board buses? Maybe• More capacity on-board MAX andWES (or attached to it)?ProbablyNot
    • Future of Bike Access to Transit• More use of folding bikes? Maybe• More bike parking at stations? Hopefully• More use of station bikes? Yes !!• Other suggestions?Discussion to follow . . . . .
    • Pedestrian Network AnalysisOverview:• We need safer and morecomfortable access totransit• This effort helps us toidentify areas where accessimprovements have thegreatest need and thehighest opportunities• Provides focus amidst greatneed throughout the region
    • Pedestrian Network AnalysisPurpose and Goals:• Prioritize Safety• Cost-effectively providingservice• Foster environmentalstewardship• Create great places
    • Pedestrian Network AnalysisOverview of Process:• Big service area with lots of transitstops1. Base Analysis(land use, ridership, destinations)2. Overlay Analysis(deficiencies and opportunities)3. Composite Scores(look for clusters, then focus areas)
    • Pedestrian Network AnalysisPartners are Key tothis processOngoing Efforts:• Initial effort complete, butwe are still working hardto find funding for projectsaround the regionSuccess Stories
    • 185th at TV Hwy,Aloha – stop id 7012, line 52Before After
    • N Adair St/Hwy 8 and 14th Street,Cornelius – stop id 32, line 57• TV Hwy w ODOT• XX locations:Before After
    • Hwy 8/SW Oaks Street at Winco,Hillsboro, stop id 4119, line 57• TV Hwy w ODOT• XX locations:Before After
    • Partner Success Stories• RRFB partnership betweenTriMet and City of Portland:• 60th/I-84/Max Station – install July 2012• SE Stark/126th – install Fall 2012• SE Division/I-205 – installFebruary 2013• SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway/62nd– install January 2013• More on the way for 2013!!
    • Ongoing Efforts• STIP Enhance Grants• 4 Corridors: Partners include: ODOT, WashingtonCounty, Cities of Portland, Gresham, Tigard, TualatinFour of 94 applications currently on the 150% list for Region 1:http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/REGION1/STIP/DRAFT150EnhanceList-ByType.pdf
    • Access Projects• We have hadsuccesses• But there isstill so muchto be done• 1500 stops do nothave completesidewalks
    • Future of Walk Access to Transit• More people living in the region? Yes• Within walking distance of transit?Most• Will the population age? Yes• More money for sidewalks? Maybe• More money for crossings?No• Can TriMet build it all?Maybe
    • Future of Walk Access to Transit• More local and regional leadersprioritize access improvements?Hopefully• Despite desires still forincreased vehicle capacity, canwe prioritize safe and shortcrossings?Hopefully• Other suggestions?Discussion to follow . . . . .
