Getting There Together
About Our Coalition
The Portland metropolitan region is an incredible place to live. But we also know that our region is a place of tremendous disparities in wealth, health, education, jobs, and access to services.
When we talk about building livable communities, we must mean “livable” for all — inclusive of all ages, abilities, races, incomes, and backgrounds. We envision a region in which everyone can live, work, play, pray, and thrive. It’s a region of communities where all of our neighbors have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of our success, and where we’re united in tackling our challenges — together.
To do that, we must build our region’s transportation system on a foundation of social equity. Learn more about who we are and our work.
WHO WE ARE
The Getting There Together Coalition was formed in 2017 in response to growing concerns that the Portland metropolitan region wasn’t adequately planning to build the comprehensive infrastructure and transportation system that will alleviate growing freeway congestion, empower working Oregonians to get to jobs, and ensure all the region’s residents prosper from an equitable, sustainable, and climate-smart investment in our future.
