Transportation Future

The City of Bend and Bend MPO is working with residents and stakeholders to create Bend’s Transportation Plan – a blueprint for a transportation system that will provide more options for getting around while protecting the quality of life that makes Bend a great place. Bend’s Transportation Plan will identify needed transportation projects and a strategy to fund them. As we start to develop our plan, we need to hear from you.  

Join us in our online open house!

Our online portal is open until July 6, 2018 .
