Transportation in the Pearl District
You have plenty of options for getting where you’re going. The Pearl District is well known for its transportation options.
This past year the city welcomed The Portland Streetcar, the most exciting and anticipated addition to Portland since MAX.
The Streetcar is your ticket to shopping on NW 23rd or downtown. The streetcar requires fare at all times, and can be purchased via any station platform with cash or card. Click here to find out exactly when the streetcar will arrive at your stop.
Most of the Pearl is in Free Rail Zone, which means you can hop the streetcar or walk to Old Town/Chinatown for the new Green and Yellow Max Lines (on 5th and 6th Ave.) on the Transit Mall near the Union Rail Station. Ride to downtown, PSU campus, or to the Lloyd Center across the river for free. Good price.
Stop in to nearly any retailer in the neighborhood and ask for a free walking map of the district. They include restaurants, shops, galleries and more.
