Secretary Fagan Completes Transit Redistricting
Directs Districts to Focus on Equity and Accessibility

Secretary of State Shemia Fagan announced the adoption of new mass transit maps today, completing the transit district redistricting process that occurs after each new census.

"Transit boards give the public a voice in how buses, trains and other transportation services operate in their communities," said Secretary Fagan. "The transit redistricting process takes place only once every 10 years and requires a great deal of cooperation. I want to thank Oregon's three mass transit districts for their partnership in this process, particularly their work to meet the public engagement requirements and diversity, equity, and inclusion values required by my office."

New districts maps are available on the Secretary of State's website.

ORS 267.090​  requires the Secretary of State to establish the process for creating and approving revised Mass Transit Redistricting Maps. These maps are redrawn every 10 years following the census. There are currently three Mass Transit Districts in Oregon: TriMet, Cherriots, and Lane Transit District. Members of the districts are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. 

In order to comply with ORS 267.090, the Secretary of State adopted 165-008-0150 Mass Transit District Reapportionment Process. This rule outlines the process mass transit districts must use for drawing new districts following the census.
