Where to Eat
Although you can see much of the compact city center on foot, or along the city's impressive, extensive network of cycling paths and trails, Portland also has an excellent public transit network. Portland's light rail system , Metropolitan Area Express (MAX), moves tourists around central downtown and Old Town, and carries commuters over the river to the eastern suburbs, also tunneling under Washington Park and the zoo. The Tri-Met bus system is based at the downtown transit mall along Fifth Avenue (southbound) and Sixth Avenue (northbound). Each bus shelter is labeled with a symbol - brown beaver, blue snowflake and so on - serving as a code for a block of bus routes in a particular area of the city. Buses and MAX trains are free in the downtown zone - "Fareless Square" - edged by the Willamette to the east, Irving Street to the north, and I-405 to the south and west. Outside here, fares are between $1.05 and $1.55 - pay the bus driver exact change; transfers for onward travel within the same zone (there are three fare zones altogether) are free.
