Visitors information sites for the area:


Portland has a metro-wide mass transit system called Trimet, which we encourage you to use. Fares are $2.30 for an all-zone ticket—this will take you from the airport to anywhere else in the system (including the Oregon Convention Center). The convention center itself is in a free fare zone that will allow you to go to and from the downtown core, including our conference hotel. Trip planning assistance is available from Trimet, and on Google Transit.
