Designed to be a two-phase project, the purpose of Phase One was to combine the goals, policies, and prioritizations of local transportation planning efforts in the Mid-Columbia Gorge in order to establish a foundation for a cohesive regional strategy and vision for public transportation. Phase One objectives included strengthening partnerships, completing local plan assessments, and synthesizing goals and policies into a high-level regional vision.
This Gorge Regional Transportation Strategy Word Cloud is a pictorial representation that shows all of the thoughts and ideas that have been incorporated into the vision that is the foundation for Public Transportation’s future in the Columbia Gorge bi-state region.
Phase One of the Gorge Transit Strategy was recently completed in June 2021, and Phase Two is expected to begin in Fall 2021. Phase Two will focus on implementation strategies with additional data analysis, ridership forecasts, financial planning, and operational assessments.

Phase 2 of the Strategy has begun in the fall of 2022! The project managers are seeking public input during the month of November for the prospective future map of Gorge Area transit shown below. The open survey can be found on the Gorge Translink website.
