Portland Oregon Transport
Getting around Portland is quick and easy on the city's award-winning light rail system, nicknamed 'MAX' (Metropolitan Area Express), which extends to the east and west of downtown with a spur at the International Airport. MAX also connects to the popular attractions at Washington Park in about 10 minutes from the city centre. Portland has a streetcar system connecting the downtown cultural district to the Portland State University, the Pearl District and northwest 'Nob Hill' area. The 'Tri-Met' bus service also covers the town centre and suburbs. All forms of public transit are free in a 330-square block downtown, known as the 'Fareless Square'. Taxis are readily available with regulated rates.
