Portland is trying to redo itself into an 1905 era city - where anyone who lives in the city can go anywhere they want in the city but forget about going anywhere outside of it. Trying to pack in density where 2 to 5 thousand people live per square mile, everything is brought into the city to support them and ensure that only the rich can afford to live and commute into the city or even go anywhere on their own.
In the long term they are going to make owning any vehicle so expensive that the truely rich will be the only ones who can afford to own a car. There will be no place to park it and if you want to park in front of your house you have to pay for it.
Look to London - only the well heeled can afford to drive to work there - everyone else is forced to spend an hour 1 to 3 hours commuting to work now in really packed tube stations.
