One of the only aerial commuter trams in the country, Portland Aerial Tram connects South Waterfront to Marquam Hill. Passengers ride between S. Moody & Gibbs on the waterfront and Kohler Pavilion on the hill. Designed to handle severe weather conditions, the Tram runs year-round.
The Tram is ADA-compliant and welcomes mobility-assistance devices. Four seats are available for people who need to sit.
Service animals are welcome on the Tram. Non-service animals are not permitted.
Fares for the general public can be found at gobytram.com/fare.
OHSU pays for OHSU associated rides in two ways:
- Patients and their visitors may request courtesy tickets from their clinic or any OHSU concierge desk
- People with an OHSU badge can use their badge as eligible fare on the Tram
The Tram is public transit. You can help make riding it a safe, enjoyable experience for everyone by following guidelines and courtesies. Some of those include:
- When the cabin is full, consider placing large bags at your feet.
- Allow first-time riders, especially children, to find room closer to a window.
- Conversations aren't private, so wait until exiting the Tram to discuss sensitive or private information.
- Carry any lab samples in approved containers.
- If you're a healthcare provider, the Tram isn't patient transportation, so consider riding the Tram to meet your patient instead.
