SUNDAY CLASS WARNING!
**SUNDAY CLASSES WARNING!!** Unfortunately, we're once again the same weekend as the Portland Bridge Pedal, so if you're coming in from the east side on Sunday morning be aware that closes most of the bridges in Portland from 7a-12:30p. The MAX train is a great alternative. If not, you can take I-5 SB to 1-405NB, both of which are supposedly open- and get off at exit 2A. Expect traffic.
PUBLIC TRANSIT/TRIMET INFO
We highly recommend riding public transit to the festival--PSU has 10 bus lines that stop there, as well as two streetcar stops and a MAX stop.
Easily get around using the Trimet Trip planner! Use it to search your timing and location requirements and it will tell you exactly how to get around on the MAX train, bus, streetcar and walking. Trip Planner is available throughout the entire Portland-metro area. Adult Fare (good for bus, MAX and streetcar) is $2.40 for 2-hours, or 5$ for all-day.
Take the MAX train from the lobby of the PDX airport! The MAX Green line, Yellow line, and the Portland Streetcar all have stops at PSU.
PARKING: There is ample metered street parking around the buildings, from 90m to 3hr limits. Street parking is free after 7p. There are also many paid parking garages and lots available for public use.
