Time: 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Where: Park Blocks, outside of Smith Memorial Student Union (1825 S.W. Broadway)

Background: Since its January 2007 launch, the bus has been to 32 state capitals and 95 schools, where 278 elected officials, 2,750 teachers and 21,650 students have been on board.

The Portland event, in partnership with Comcast, is part of the Bus's inaugural "Road to the White House" tour, named after C-SPAN's political program that marks its 20th year on the air in 2008.
