The Street Trust is a non-profit membership organization working to promote and improve public transit, walking, and bicycling conditions in Oregon. Since 1990, The Street Trust has worked in partnership with citizens, businesses, community groups, government agencies, and elected officials to create communities where people can meet their daily transportation needs through active transportation.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our programs encourage countless people of all ages to take up active transportation each year. More than 200 schools participate in our Walk & Roll to school programs, getting thousands of kids active to improve their health, our climate, and the safety of our roads. Likewise, our Bike More Challenge encourages over 10,000 adults each year to grab their bikes for their commutes to work, and our WeBike program provides the resources and community that women and trans people need to break down the barriers that stand in their way of meeting their transportation and recreation needs through bicycling.
“We advocate for healthy and thriving communities where it is safe and easy for people to bike, walk and ride public transit. We envision a region where walking, biking and taking transit are embraced by all those who call our community Home especially for communities that haven't been invested in historically .” - Tia Sherry, Co-Executive Director of The Street Trust .
