    & rarely enforced. All fare media is paper.

  • 16. Mount Hood
    The Portland Tram is both public transportation and tourist attraction linking the upper & lower campuses of Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU)

    terrain dictates unique connections

  • 26. Lots of street trees!
  • 27. My impression: Portland is a beautiful city whose citizens enjoy its fun “sense of place”. The city is aggressively pursuing a variety of transportation options. Nonetheless, just like the rest of America, TDM opportunities remainas SOV use remains predominant.
