Mapping Portland's 'Rose Lane Vision' Bus Priority Program
"Portland transportation officials released more information this week on its proposal to speed up bus and streetcar lines through congested streets across the city," reports Andrew Theen.
The new details of the Rose Lane Vision project include a map. To plot this draft map, the city "focused its proposals on routes that already are significantly delayed, carry more than 1,500 riders every day, and operate with at least four buses an hour in a single direction," according to Theen.
For faster and more reliable service on buses and streetcars, the city is considering a variety of methods, including dedicated bus lanes, bus lanes that allow right-turning vehicles, signal priority, queue jumps, and share bus-bike lanes.
