Public Transit in Portland – The Basics
February 28, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
I was going to call this tour “Public Transit 101” or maybe “Public Transit for Dummies”; but I realize that to become familiar with the excellent public transit system in Portland takes patience, a certain amount of ingenuity, and a willingness to try something new.
I had rarely taken public transit before moving to Portland in 2010. Since then, I am a daily passenger on bus, Max or streetcar. I have learned the fundamentals and nuances of using transit for most all of my personal and professional trips in Portland.
This “tour” is a workshop/tutorial on public transit in Portland. We’ll meet at the west end of the Tilikum Crossing Bridge and then take a MAX, bus and streetcar ride taking us downtown and back to our starting point.
I’ll add a return trip to our starting place via the Aerial Tram (free coming down) for those who would like.
Bring $5.00 ($2.50 for 65+) for a Trimet day pass.
