Public Transportation in Portland

We at Geekfest Portland 2007 believe you can survive nicely without having to rent a car.

Though we've never actually done it, we believe you can catch a MAX Line from the airport to a stop not far from the hotel for a measly $2. Simply get on the westbound train and get off at the Lloyd Center Shopping Mall exit. You could either grab a taxi from there or hop on a bus that will get you near the hotel. Better yet, call a fellow APADer with a car and hitch a ride.

We also want to encourage you to plan on doing a lot of walking. Bring comfortable shoes and travel light. Once you escape the semi-safe area around the hotel, you'll find your walk to the action downtown very friendly in a semi-safe kind of way. But, you'll see things worth pointing a camera at.
