History

Launched in 1991, Oregon Walks* did more than pioneer the concept of pedestrian action, an idea that has since spread to many other cities, including Seattle and Atlanta. Over the past decade, as the region has implemented new alternative transportation policies, Oregon Walks has brought pedestrians forward as a constituency that needs to be taken seriously.
