Three-quarters of Ravenna residents said they plan to use the Roosevelt light rail station when it opens, according to a 2013 RBCA survey.

Join U District, Let’s Go for an evening of sharing ideas and resources to prepare for these changes. Learn what our neighborhoods are already doing to get ready for transportation investments coming soon. Let’s learn from each other and build on our collective creativity as we get ready for 2021.
