OHSU Transportation Updates

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, both at OHSU and in the general public.

As OHSU works towards a new normal, we will continue to update with the latest transportation changes. People with an OHSU login can visit OHSU Now for the latest updates.

Those with an OHSU login can view the most recent OHSU Now post for a look at the parking plan as we return to our new normal.

•    Patient parking is free for all patients and patient visitors.
•    Permits are required for all non-patient parking on Marquam Hill and South Waterfront during normal business hours. Do not park in 24/7 reserved stalls unless you are assigned to that stall.
•    Effective July 13, 2020 parking charges have resumed in OHSU Marquam Hill, South Waterfront and downtown locations. 

Permit parking facilities and tiered daily rates

Please reference the maps to learn where daily permits are available and for the tiered pricing rates in each facility. 

Permits can be reserved via payroll through MyCommute.

Permits can also be reserved through Parkmobile for those that are not OHSU payroll eligible. 

To reduce the overall number of people on the Tram, OHSU and the City of Portland have temporarily ceased general ticket sales. Tram attendants and guides are available to help direct foot traffic, prioritize urgent trips, and guide people to other inter-campus options.

Masks are required to be worn on the Tram. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.

Employees and patients can use the Tram for transportation between campuses, but we ask that trips be limited as much as possible. 

Valid fare for the Tram includes:

  • OHSU ID Badges
  • VA Employee ID Badges
  • Shriners Employee ID Badges
  • Patient passes (Family passes are not accepted at this time) – patient passes can be obtained from OHSU Concierge desks or your provider.

See the latest Tram Operations Notice.
