Friday Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. With the start of 2019, we're changing it up a bit! The seminar will be delivered 11:30 am (sharp) - 12:30 pm, with additional discussion over coffee and donuts afterwards. You can also watch online.

Periodically, we're teaming up with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to bring you special editions—featuring guest speakers from PBOT—merging our seminar series and the long-standing PBOT Lunch & Learn.

Portland's neighborhood greenways are a key component of the city's transportation system and future. Join PBOT's new neighborhood greenway coordinator to learn how this facility type developed, near-term plans for improvements, and what the future holds for these unique bikeways.


Participants will gain a better understanding of: 

  • The history of Portland's neighborhood greenways
  • PBOT's evaluation process for the neighborhood greenway system
  • Where the system is thriving and where PBOT sees deficiencies
  • How PBOT plans to address the system's development over the next three to five years
