Public Transportation & Discount Tri-Met Passes

The Trimet mass transit system is very easily accessible from campus. The Streetcar line, which runs from NW Portland through downtown to SW Portland, as well as across the river to the inner Eastside, has a stop just across the street from Loveridge Hall. A number of bus lines also stop just near campus. The Max lightrail line, which runs from Hillsboro to Gresham, and to Clackamas and the Portland Airport, is a short walk or bus ride from campus. Students with a current, valid ID can also ride the Streetcar (but not the Max or buses) for free.

Student Life sells reduced priced Trimet 2-hour, all-zone ticket books. The cost of the Trimet ticket books is normally $25 each, but they are available to current students for $15 each (ASLC-PC/Student Life is supplementing 40% of the cost to offer you this price).  Ticket books can be purchased with cash or check only.  Each student can purchase up to 4 ticket books each month and the tickets do not expire.
