By Public Transportation - TriMet: Portland's public transportation is excellent and accessible. Parking is limited in the downtown area, so arriving by transit is strongly recommended. Use TriMet's trip planner to plan your route by bus, streetcar or MAX. The MAX yellow and green lines stop a few blocks away at the SW Hall stop.

By Bicycle: Riding your bike is an easy way to get to campus. There are plenty of bike racks, and the campus is bike friendly. See the City of Portland's bike page for more information. If your trip is a longer distance, note that all TriMet buses, MAX, and the Portland Streetcar are equipped to accommodate bicycles.

Driving Directions to Parking Garage: Once on 4th Avenue, immediately get into the right hand lane. The parking garage entrance will be on your right BEFORE the City of Portland Tower (underneath 1930 SW 4th). There is a Chevron station directly across the street from the entrance.
