The Street Trust works to promote and improve public transit, walking bicycling conditions in Oregon. Since 1990, The Street Trust (formerly the Bicycle Transportation Alliance) 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 on a bike. 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 all those who call our community home embrace walking, biking and riding transit.
