    The beauty of the Columbia River Gorge attracts thousands of visitors each day. Parking is often at or over capacity and access to picture perfect sites can be challenging. As the 100th Anniversary of the Historic Columbia River Highway approaches this year, local communities, public agencies and land managers are looking for ways to combat congestion that affects Gorge residents and visitors alike.

    Identifying solutions
    There are few public transit options in the Gorge, and none that connect recreational and tourist attractions such as Multnomah Falls with population centers.  Enhanced public or private transit options are likely an important part of any solution to address congestion. The Oregon Department of Transportation has initiated the Columbia River Gorge Transit Study to identify near-term solutions for better transit options for both Gorge residents and visitors.

    Project Goals:
    • Improve transit access and options to recreational destinations in the Columbia River Gorge and between East Multnomah County and The Dalles
    • Enhance Gorge mobility and safety
    • Address congestion and limited parking capacity at Multnomah Falls
    • Protect natural and cultural resources by reducing illegal parking
    • We want to hear from you!

    Residents and visitors are invited to complete an online survey about Gorge travel between January 11-31, 2016.[/list]
