Eugene’s transportation system provides mobility and access over a broad network of streets, alleys, sidewalks, accessways and shared use paths. There are more than 540 miles of streets, 43 miles of alleys, over 750 miles of sidewalks and accessways, 45 miles of off-street shared use paths and 158 miles of striped on-street bike lanes that provide the foundation of Eugene’s multimodal transportation network.
The Eugene 2035 Transportation System Plan (TSP) is a 20-year roadmap providing guidance on how to operate and maintain this system. It calls for reducing the consumption of fossil fuels, tripling the percentage of trips made using active transportation (walking, biking, public transit), and ensuring that the system is safe and accessible to everyone.
The Transportation Planning Team seeks to meet the goals outlined in the TSP through advancing the Climate Recovery Ordinance, following the Triple Bottom Line principles (economic prosperity, social equity, environmental health), and implementing the policies and projects set forth other plans and strategies, including:
The Vision Zero Action Plan, which identifies actions to eliminate all deaths and life-changing injuries that occur on our transportation system
The MoveEUG Active Transportation Strategy, which highlights strategies to increase the use of electric vehicles in Eugene, build additional walking and biking infrastructure, and increase the role of employers and developers in reducing trips made in single occupancy vehicles
The Electric Vehicle Strategy, a list of 26 actions targeted to reach the City’s goal that 50% of all cars in Eugene be electric by 2030, and 90% by 2050
The Climate Action Plan 2.0, which lays out actions necessary in the realms of transportation, energy and waste to achieve the Climate Recovery Ordinance’s greenhouse gas emission reduction target
