HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN) — As Intel and other companies grow, so will traffic in the Hillsboro region. City leaders are looking into the possibility of launching its own streetcar system.

The plan, in its early stages, would include a loop around the Amberglen and Tanasbourne areas and would also service Intel. Other options include rapid bus service.

Officials said they’re working with TriMet, but it’s far too early to commit to one plan.
