Community-based Assessment of Transportation Needs to Inform City of Portland Smart Cities Plan

The Portland Smart Cities UB Mobile PDX proposal is being transformed into a city of Portland Smart cities plan. The original proposal focused strongly on developing mobility solutions that would serve traditionally underserved populations. As the proposal moves into a plan, the project intends to deepen community engagement work, explore and assess what the transportation needs are in traditionally underserved communities, and explore how new mobility solutions embedded in Mobile PDX can best be crafted to meet the needs of low-income and traditionally underserved residents in Portland Oregon. This project will assist in that effort by developing a community-based needs assessment, involving an analysis of existing data sets, along with original survey work and focus group discussions with community members. The project will inform the plan and how it can be best designed to serve the needs of traditionally underserved communities.
