Exploring the City

Portland is a fun town, and getting around is very easy! There's lots to see and do, eat and drink, or use it as a jumping off point for a deeper #TravelOregon adventure: head west to the coast or east to Mt Hood; head north into Washington, or south towards Eugene and Bend. Here are some tips from the locals.

Getting Around

  • Public Transportation: TriMet serves Portland, Gresham, Clackamas, Milwaukie, and Hilsboro/Beaverton. Tickets are $2.50 for 2.5 hours or $5 for all day on all services: MAX (light rail), buses, and Portland street car. Visit and download the TriMet app for extra user friendliness.
