ODOT unveils new Innovative Mobility Program with micro-grants that aim to improve access to public transportation, reduce trips made by car, and reduce transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions

The Innovative Mobility Program (IMP) is a new initiative from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) that aims to improve access to public transportation, reduce the number of trips Oregonians make by car, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The IMP has a special focus on equity and helping historically excluded groups to get to where they need to go more quickly, cheaply and safely. The IMP is funded by Infrastructure, Investment and Jobs Act, passed by Congress in November 2021, as well as state of Oregon dollars. The program has a total of $20 million for grants and contracts from 2022-25.
