... to beautiful Portland and the gorgeous state of Oregon!
Yes, I am a proud Oregon native who

and Portland itself. We at The Portland
Guide welcome you and wish you a truly

While cabs can usually be picked up fairly easily in front of downtown hotels, it’s a

Portland public transportation is made up of the MAX (Metropolitan Area
Express) train, TriMet buses and the Portland Streetcar. It is convenient, and TriMet
covers the entire Metro area. For additional information, call 503/238-RIDE or visit
