TriMet’s MAX Light Rail System connects Portland, Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro and the Portland Airport. Trains run every 5-15 minutes roughly between 4:30am and midnight. MAX Light Rail uses only electricity, and even supplies some of its own power through braking (like hybrid cars). With MAX factored in, TriMet is more than 10 times as fuel-efficient per passenger as the average car. Experience a big part of why Portland is consider one of the country’s most sustainable cities.
