Introduction

Please take the following survey to provide us feedback on your experience using temporary transit platforms.

In 2020 and 2021, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), in partnership with TriMet, installed two types of temporary platforms. The temporary platforms include five rubber modular platforms and five asphalt platforms.

These temporary platforms, generally used at transit stops, help PBOT make quick, affordable changes on city streets. Ultimately, these temporary platforms are intended to make it easier for people to walk, bike, and take transit. The platform designs vary because they were installed to meet different needs depending upon the location. To learn more, look for the links at the end of this survey.

Photo 1. The rubber modular temporary bus stop platform allows for people biking to ride up and over the platform, allows for the bus to stop in lane and provides people with more space while waiting for the bus, boarding and de-boarding. This one is located on SE Hawthorne at the bus stop near 6th Ave. Photo courtesy of PBOT.

Photo 2. The asphalt temporary platform allows for the bus to stop in lane and provides people with more space while waiting for the bus, boarding and de-boarding. It does not include a space for bikes over the platform, but where bike lanes already existed, they remain in front the platform. This one is located on SE Stark at the TriMet bus stop near 90th Ave. Photo courtesy of PBOT.
