Transportation Options: Strategies for a Growing Eugene
We're a Growing City
By 2035, there will be 18% increase in people working in Eugene and 24% increase in residents. To accommodate this growth – and meet its climate commitment – the City of Eugene has set ambitious goals to get more people walking, biking, taking transit, and sharing rides by 2035.
Transportation Options: Strategies for a Growing Eugene, a review of the City's transportation demand management policies and programs, is helping the City move toward these goals in two important ways:
Identifying opportunities in the planning and development process to ensure new development promotes a safe multimodal transportation system.
Exploring if and how employers could be incentivized or required to develop transportation programs that would reduce the number of employees driving alone to work.
This process will result in an update to the traffic impact analysis (TIA) process for new development as well as an evaluation of the City's transportation demand management (TDM) programs related to new construction and employers.
