Getting in & around

  • PDX international airport is pretty well connected to the rest of the continental US (Delta & Alaska airlines hub). It’s also well connected to SkyTeam hubs (Amsterdam, Seoul, etc).
  • From Seattle, it’s also really easy to hop on a bus (BoltBus/Greyhound) or an Amtrak train to get to Downtown Portland in 3-4 hours. This is what we usually did as fares are cheap ($15 per person one way)
  • Portland has the best public transit system in the USA by far. A 1-day pass is $5 and is great value (usable on all modes of transport, bus, light rail & tram). We feel it’s actually comparable to European city standards of public transport. We saw the whole city just by public transit with no issues at all. We’ll be writing a public transit guide for Portland.
