Travel Advisory

Per Portland Bureau of Transportation

Updated April 6, 2021

Limited fares. Although Multnomah County has been approved for Phase I reopening, ridership will still be restricted to the following fares which are required for boarding at both the Marquam Hill and South Waterfront terminals:

  • OHSU identification badges
  • VA Portland Health Care System employee cards
  • Shriner’s Hospitals for Children – Portland employee cards
  • Patient tram passes* of OHSU

*OHSU patient passes can be picked up at OHSU Concierge desks. Family passes are not being issued at this time due to Hospital visitor restrictions.

This ensures the safety of patients, hospital staff, and the broader community. Visit OHSU’s visitation policy page for up to date information.

Limited passengers. Tram operators will not allow more than 20 people at a time to ride in each of the two cabins, down from a normal capacity of 79 people per cabin. This helps passengers and operators to implement physical distancing guidance the governor and public health officials have established.

Limited days of operation. Tram operates Monday-Saturday. Sunday operations have been delayed until further notice.

General public ticket sales for the tram are expected to resume once risks of COVID-19 subside and hospital visitation restrictions are lifted.
