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.
