The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project is planning for more reliable, frequent bus transit service that moves more people more quickly between important destinations in Portland and Gresham. It also is looking at opportunities for making even more vibrant, healthy neighborhoods along the route.

Gresham is working with partners including Metro, TriMet, City of Portland, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Multnomah County to ensure that land-use and transit alternatives consider and meet the needs of Gresham and bring key investments to improve Gresham’s quality of life.

Gresham also is studying station opportunity areas to identify community interests and develop strategies the City can use to encourage those desired changes. These strategies will be documented in the action plan.
