The Portland Streetcar system is a collaborative effort between the City of Portland and TriMet. The same tickets and passes used for MAX or TriMet Buses are also used for the Portland Streetcar. The streetcar opened during the summer of 2001 and operates between NW 23rd Ave. and SW Lowell and Bond in the new SW Waterfront neighborhood. The streetcars also service Portland State University and the Pearl District. Stops are placed every 2-3 blocks. For schedules, fares, and more information, follow the TriMet Web site link below.
