South Beaverton Transit Needs Analysis Study

The South Beaverton Transit Needs Analysis Study is a partnership between Washington County, City of Beaverton, City of Tigard and Ride Connection.

Goal of the Project

The goal of the South Beaverton Transit Needs Analysis is to identify the need for transportation services in SW Beaverton and NW Tigard. Upon completion, the results of the Needs Analysis may be used in an application for funding to provide a dedicated transit service in SW Beaverton to complement existing TriMet bus routes.

Project Background

The South Cooper Mountain area of SW Beaverton and the River Terrace neighborhoods of Tigard are currently experiencing significant growth, leading to an increase in new residents in the coming years whose transportation needs will need to be met.

Partnering agencies have identified the entire South Cooper Mountain area as having potential suitability for some form of transit connector service to provide connections not only to TriMet bus routes but also to the greater Beaverton and Tigard communities.

This area is currently not served by TriMet bus service, though TriMet has proposed to extend the Line 56 Scholls Ferry Road in the future.

We Want to Hear From You

The South Beaverton Transit Needs Analysis project is looking for input from local community organizations and residents, just like you, regarding critical transportation needs that you, a relative, a neighbor, or someone you know may have.

Whether you are reliant on the bus to meet your travel needs, commute to work in the Beaverton or Hillsboro area, or just wish for a connector to your local neighborhood parks and shopping centers, please take our Community Survey to let us know where you would like to go in your area.

Your input is invaluable to the South Beaverton Transit Needs Analysis project. Please submit your surveys by Friday, July 17.
