Getting around

MAX Light Rail whisks visitors and residents between the airport and downtown, as well as to attractions like the Oregon Zoo and also covers the Portland Streetcar system. Many Portlanders simply ride their bikes, year-round, enjoying the great network of special lanes and bike paths designed for cyclists. Bicycle rentals are easy to come by too.
