Portland Stories and Tips

Tri-Met system

Avoid driving your car in Portland. The people who live here believe in keeping Oregon as beautiful as it is forever. The MAX (mass transit system) is the way to go.

The system is divided into 3 zones. Depending on where you want to go, you'll need to purchase a ticket that covers those zones. You're ticket is good for a certain period of time.

One zone tickets cost about $1.50. You can also buy a packet of tickets or tickets that cover more than one zone.

It's quite an inexpensive and efficient way to get around town. And it's cheap too. Avoid it around rush hour though. It gets quite crowded.
