If you’re new to this amazing city or have just moved to a new neighborhood, you’re fortunate to live in a place that provides a wide range of options for getting around.


This is a great city for walking. Many Portland neighborhoods receive high marks for walkability – you can check out your home's walk score at Our mixed-use neighborhoods make it easy to incorporate walking into your daily routine. Explore a variety of areas in Portland on our Ten Toe Express walking tours.


Portland is one of the Best Bike Cities in North America (per Bicycling Magazine)! Most Portlanders live within a quarter mile of a bike lane, neighborhood greenway or a multi-use path ready to whisk you off to your destination. Portland By Cycle rides and classes show you the best low-stress ways to get where you're going - by bike.


Portland has an enviable transit system for a city of our size. An interconnected system of TriMet buses and MAX light rail, Portland Streetcar and even an Aerial Tram make it easy to get where you're going without a car.

There are lots of options for Portlanders who want to live a carfree or carlight lifestyle. Carsharing is abundant here, with 4 different companies offering vehicles to use by the minute, hour, or day. Some apartments even offer a car for tenant use, making it easy to give up your car or do without a second car.

Welcome SmartTrips is here to make sure you have the resources you need to take advantage of all these options and more. We’re a one-stop shop for all the trip tools and resources you need to get around and grab the city by the horns – or handlebars. 


Start here! This is the golden ticket to having Portland in the palm of your hand. Pretty soon you’ll be rolling and strolling and navigating the city like a native. And yes, it’s all FREE!
