Getting to Portland

Travel By Car
From Washington to the north and California as well as most of the rest of Oregon to the south, the easiest way to get to Portland is on Interstate 5. You can enter the south part of downtown from I-5 before it goes over the Willamette River, or you can take I-405 which runs directly through downtown Portland with a number of exits.
From Boise and other points east, Interstate 84 leads along the Columbia into Portland. From the Oregon Coast Highway and other points along the Pacific coast to the west, the easiest approach is U.S. 26. It cuts east towards Portland between Cannon Beach and Seaside.

Travel By Air
Portland International Airport is located 9 mi (15 km) northeast of downtown on the Columbia River. This is also a dual-use air force base. Most major airlines serve Portland from nearly all major airports in the United States. Non-stop air service is also available from Vancouver, British Columbia, Toronto, Ontario, (seasonal) and Calgary, Alberta, Canada (seasonal), Tokyo, Japan; and Amsterdam.

Travel By Train
Amtrak provides service from Union Station, 800 NW Sixth Avenue (north of downtown), about a 15-min walk from Pioneer Square. The transit mall ends at Union Station, so local TriMet buses and the MAX green and yellow line trains run by Union Station very frequently.

Getting Around Portland

Travel By Foot
Portland is a great city for walking. Many intersections are designed with pedestrians in mind, and Portland has a lot of street life. Good mass transit also makes walking more feasible in Portland. The City of Portland Office of Transportation offers free, highly detailed walking maps that may be ordered online.

Travel By Bike
Portland is an excellent city for cycling, with a network of streets designed to be predominantly used by bicyclists. These streets, such as SE Ankeny, SE Salmon, SE Lincoln, and SE Clinton, are usually spaced about halfway between the main car thoroughfares in the grid of East Portland. The bike streets are generally signed with green "Bike Route" signs. Additionally, many major streets have striped bike lanes. Maps of bike trails can be obtained from Metro, in the Bike There! section. Bikes can also be taken on all buses and MAX lines. The City of Portland Office of Transportation has a bicycle rental webpage.

Travel by Public Transportation
TriMet maintains bus, streetcar, and MAX light rail throughout the Portland area. There are four MAX Light Rail lines:
The Blue Line, which runs from Hillsboro east through Beaverton and downtown to Gresham.
The Red Line, which runs from the Portland International Airport to downtown and west on to Beaverton.
The Yellow Line, which runs from the Expo Center south to downtown and the Portland State University.
The Green Line, which runs from Clackamas Town Center north and west to downtown and the Portland State University.

All of the lines go through the city's downtown, with the red and blue lines going in a east-west direction and overlapping on Morrison/Yamhill Streets, while the yellow and green lines go in a north-south direction and overlap on the Portland Transit Mall, along 5th/6th Avenues. The light rail lines run every 15 minutes for most of the day, with service every 30 minutes in the wee hours of the night. There is also a vintage trolley service on Sundays along 5th/6th Avenues on the yellow/green lines in downtown which is free to use and has conductors narrating on historic points of interest along the way.

In addition, TriMet maintains the Portland Streetcar lines. The NS (North/South) line runs through the downtown area along 10th and 11th Avenues every 13-20 minutes, connecting the Northwest Portland, Pearl District, Downtown, Riverplace, and South Waterfront neighborhoods, plus Portland State University. The CL (Central Loop) line runs along the east side of the Willamette River, primarily on MLK & Grand Avenues (both SE & NE). The CL line crosses the Willamette over the Broadway Bridge.
