While inclined elevators are cool, it seems like this would be better served with 1 long escalator or 2 short ones. The distance doesn't seem that far.

City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly Wants to Create Miles of Bus-Only Lanes Along Portland’s Busiest Streets
By Rachel Monahan | Published 5:36 AM Updated 8:53 AM



Quote:
In 18 months, Portland streets could see the most dramatic change in public transit since the arrival of the streetcar. All it will take is gallons of red paint.

Deep in the bowels of city bureaucracy, Portland transportation officials under the direction of Commissioner Chloe Eudaly are preparing to debut what they're calling the "Red Lane Project": removing miles of roadside parking and traffic lanes from Portland streets to make room for uninterrupted routes for buses.

...

The proportion of Portland commuters riding public transit has stagnated at about 13 percent, roughly unchanged since 2005. (To achieve the climate action goals the city has set, a quarter of commuters need to ride public transit by 2035.)

Last fiscal year, even as Portland continued to grow, TriMet saw the lowest number of bus rides in more than 18 years, a continuation of three straight years of decline.

One reason: Buses are traveling more slowly. Speeds on key routes have decreased by more than 7 percent between 2009 and 2017.

Good to know. Cheers.
