Portland Oregon transportation all around the city and beyond is plentiful. You'd think that because of the surrounding mountains, valleys and such that it would be difficult to maneuver around the City of Roses. Oh, contraire! ;)
Portland is people-friendly and that means it places a high value on getting everyone to exactly where they are wanting to get to. Choose your flavor of Portland transportation:
Buses - Portland public transit has always been golden. Tri Met makes travel throughout Portland and it's areas beyond easy as pie.
Portland Light Rail - The same goes for MAX, our light rail. Anywhere you need to go, find a station, pay your fare and away you go.
Taxi - Portland has a few taxi services, but they are not a way of life as in New York or some of the other major urban cities. Still, it's there for the taking.
The Portland Streetcar - Another way of getting around Portland is the charming street cars. Head downtown, park, and hop a streetcar for a full day of shopping.
Pedicab - You can rent a pedal-powered rickshaw-like cab for an event or simply to get around the downtown Portland and Pearl District areas.
Aerial Tram - Not something to get wherever you need to go, but a unique and enjoyable way of traveling from Marquam Hill to the the South Waterfront.
Car - Fire up the automobile and come on down! Maneuvering the streets of Portland takes a bit of getting used to, but that shouldn't stop you from driving into the city.Keep in mind that when getting your tank filled, Oregon is not a self-serve gas state. You'll need to wait in your vehicle for a gas station attendant to serve you.
