Riding High and Car-free
Urban explorers discover Portland’s forested backdrop, avant-garde fine art, swoon-worthy shopping (sans sales tax, no less), and haute cuisine on the 4T.
Portland’s progressive mass transit system makes it easy to navigate the city’s hip West End. The 4T route—train, trail, tram and trolley—allows eco-friendly urban explorers to discover the city on two feet, be it a morning hike on the Marquam Trail, accessed via a short train (MAX) ride; an aerial cruise on the tram and a trip on the trolley (streetcar) for shopping, galleries and a candlelit dinner. Of course, in a city that has about as many green accolades as it does coffee shops, would you expect anything less?
