(May 18, 2022) The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is committed to ensuring an accessible transportation system for all users, while being transparent with the public in how work gets completed.
Portlanders are encouraged to read PBOT’s 2021 Annual Report Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title II Public Right of Way Transition Plan Update.
The report details how PBOT is updating its accessible parking policy, connecting with community organizations by and for people with disabilities, and has rebuilt more than 1,500 curb ramps in the last year. All Portlanders benefit from ADA-compliant curb ramps which help remove barriers for pedestrians, including those who use mobility devices.
The report also details how a strengthened partnership with TriMet has helped us remove barriers to accessibility at more than a dozen transit stops.
PBOT is required to release this report annually, per Portland City Council’s July 2021 Resolution 37544. While this report outlines PBOT’s accomplishments advancing ADA compliance for 2021, projects completed earlier in the year are likely underreported.
We look forward to sharing more thorough and comprehensive reports in the coming years.
If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Strader, PBOT ADA Coordinator, Lisa.Strader@Portlandoregon.gov.
