Outdoor recreation -- Oregon, Local transit, Oregon. Department of Transportation -- Management, Transportation management


As outdoor recreation areas in Oregon become more popular, increased auto-related congestion results in strained resources, environmental degradation, and diminished visitors’ experiences. This project proposes policies, strategies, and a variety of approaches to help transportation agencies and land managers facilitate car-free access to outdoor recreation areas. The plan also proposes approaches to increase access to recreation areas for transit-dependent visitors and under-represented communities who face significant barriers to access today. The Background Report includes data; interview, survey and focus group themes; site visit findings; and personal travel anecdotes.


This toolkit is a collection of policies, strategies, and other solutions to help transportation agencies and land managers plan and implement car-free solutions to outdoor recreation areas.

Client: Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), transit agencies, land managers, and the recreation industry by Oxbow Consulting.

Faculty workshop advisors: Marisa Zapata and Deborah Stein
