Portland is a great city for biking. Most people here 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. Click here for more biking resources.
Portland has an enviable transit system for a city of our size. An interconnected system of TriMet buses and MAX light rail trains, 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. Car sharing is abundant here, with four 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.
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!
