Portland Tram takes off
The Portland Tram officially kicked off to the public over the weekend by providing 10,000 rides to those who so wanted. The Tram, for those who do not know, is an aerial tram designed to carry doctors, patients and the general public between the upper and lower portions (part of a new neighborhood called South Waterfront) of OHSU in the southwest portion of Portland. Press coverage of the tram unveilng was huge, with everybody from the local Oregonian to the New York Times doing a write up.
And now that the festivities have passed what will you have to pay? A normal ride will cost you $4 round trip. If you’d rather ride before you buy, so to speak, Portland and OHSU are offering free rides during select times in the month of February.
