Transportation

Located in Portland’s urban core, the Rose Quarter provides strong transportation choices for visitors, with more than 30 percent of attendees choosing public or alternative transportation—such as bikes. The team subsidizes transit passes for staff and utilizes bikes and electric vehicles for on-site operations.

Improved bike infrastructure to include shelters, additional racks, lighting improvements, video surveillance, and signage.

Over 37% of our employees use alternative transportation to and from the Rose Quarter.

Installed electric vehicle charging stations and reserved VIP parking for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Participate in the local Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Bike Commute Challenge.

The Rose Quarter has diligently worked with local transportation officials to encourage the use of Public Transit and alternative transportation options.  These options include light-rail, bus transit, biking, walking, carpooling and other alternatives.  Use of public transit and alternative travel is approximately 30-40% of total event patron attendance (depending on event).

Rose Quarter tax increment dollars for the Lloyd District Business Improvement District supports a fareless portion (which includes the Rose Quarter, running from the Lloyd Center Mall to Downtown Portland) of public transit.  Users in this area do not have to pay for riding transit. We are also supporting the development of the Eastside Portland Streetcar extension to the East side of the Willamette River.
