It's days like today that make me happy to live in P-town.  I normally ride my bike downtown to work or hop on the 35 since the stop is very close to my house.  But with the buses running slower because of the chains I decided to walk the extra distance (only about a 1/2 mile) to the MAX station.  It came right on time and had me at work 5 minutes ahead of schedule!

Talk about options!  I actually had my choice between the bus or train within walking distance of my house.  Lucky.

How about you?  How did you find your way downtown this morning?  Were you as lucky as me?

Stay safe out there and, although it's our job here at SmartTrips Downtown to promote your transportation options, we really mean it today - don't drive if you don't have to!

Before heading out, check with TriMet or C-Tran for winter weather updates. As of December 15th at 12:30 p.m., TriMet is operating on regular schedules on most lines while two lines are suspended and there are some detours on others. C-Tran also has some snow detours.
