Portland Aerial Tram is an aerial tramway carrying commuters between Oregon Health & Science University’s (OHSU) South Waterfront campus and the Marquam Hill neighborhood. It is the United State’s second commuter aerial tramway (after New York City’s Roosevelt Island Tramway).
The Tram cabins travel 3,300 linear feet at 22 miles per hour and offers riders picture-perfect views of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and downtown Portland.
