What are my options for getting from/to the airport and around Portland?
Directions from the airport
We recommend taking the MAX light-rail into downtown Portland from Portland Interantional Airport (PDX). Tickets are available for purchase at ticket machines in the airport, and you can board the MAX Red Line from the airport station. Fare for this trip is $2.50 for an adult, and you will need to buy your ticket before boarding the train. Then follow these instructions from the TriMet Trip Planner from Portland Airport to 930 SW HALL ST:
Board MAX Red Line to City Center & Beaverton
Get off at Rose Quarter TC MAX Station
Walk 277 feet to Rose Quarter Transit Center
Board 8-Jackson Park/NE 15th to Marquam Hill via City Center
Get off at SW 5th & Hall
Walk 1/4 mile to 930 SW HALL ST, Portland
Portland is built to accommodate walking, biking, and public transportation: it is very friendly to people without cars. Taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts are almost unnecessary, especially given the central location of Expo: the Viking Pavilion is downtown on Portland State University campus and is accessible by Portland’s excellent and inexpensive public transit. Transit cost is $2.50 for 2.5 hours or $5 all day. We recommend you download the Transit app or use the TriMet Trip Planner for step-by-step instructions for how to get from one place to another using Portland public transit.
