Light Rail


TriMet's Light Rail currently has four lines.

Light Rail connection from the South Waterfront is easy by simply jumping on the Streetcar and transferring at Portland State University Campus or the Central City Library.

Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project

The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project will create a light rail alignment that travels 7.3 miles, connecting Portland State University in downtown Portland, inner Southeast Portland, Milwaukie, and north Clackamas County. The project itself will create up to 14,500 jobs and generate up to $573 million in personal earnings.

MAX service on the alignment is scheduled to begin in 2015. By 2030, this future light rail line will carry up to an average of 27,400 weekday riders and there will be approximately 22,000 households and 85,000 employees within walking distance of Portland-Milwaukie light rail stations.

South Waterfront residents will have yet one more transportation option as connection to Portland's eastside will ultimately be accessible by light rail and streetcar using the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Bridge in 2015.
