Traveling to Portland, Oregon

By Air
The Oregon Convention Center is located eleven miles from the 
Portland International Airport.

To and From the Airport
Taxicab stands are conveniently located near the Arrivals (baggage claim) exits of each terminal. Dispatchers at each stand will help you select a taxicab based on your destination in Portland. No advance reservations are required—service is on a first-come, first-served basis. Fares to the Oregon Convention Center are approximately $50.00.

 

MAX Light Rail connects the airport to downtown Portland. The MAX light rail Red Line is the easiest way to travel to and from the airport. The MAX station and ticket machines are located on the lower level, next to the south baggage claim area. The trip between the airport and downtown Portland takes 38 minutes. An adult ticket costs $2.50. The first train of the day arrives at PDX at 4:45 a.m. and the last train departs PDX at 11:50 p.m.
