Visitors information sites for the area:

Transit

Portland has a metro-wide mass transit system called TriMet, which we encourage you to use. Fares are $2.50 for a "go anywhere" ticket, good for 2 hours—this will take you from the airport to anywhere else in the system; an all-day ticket is only $5.00. Trip planning assistance is available from TriMet, and on Google Transit.

If you've visited Portland in past years, you'll notice a couple of changes: TriMet no longer has a "Fareless Square" downtown, and the Zone fares have been eliminated in favor of a "go anywhere" ticket that covers TriMet bus, light rail (Max) and streetcar throughout the service area.
