Portland Oregon Transport


Getting around Portland is quick and easy on the city's award-winning light rail system, nicknamed 'MAX' (Metropolitan Area Express). It extends to the east and west of downtown, with a spur to the Portland International Airport.

MAX also connects to the popular attractions at Washington Park 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 Nob Hill.

The Tri-Met bus service covers the town centre and suburbs. Taxis are readily available, with regulated rates, and those who prefer to hire a car will find plentiful car rental companies.
