Ride the Portland Aerial Tram

The Portland Aerial Tram cabins travel 3,300 linear feet from South Waterfront to Marquam Hill.

Traveling at 22 miles per hour, the Tram cabins rise 500 feet during the four-minute trip. Each of the two cabins have a capacity of 79 people, including the operator. The Tram operates load-n-go. If you miss one, expect another in just a few minutes.

Including travel and boarding time, cabins typically depart every 5 minutes. A trip is 4 minutes each way. Visit the upper terminal and nearby patios and cafes for as long as you wish.
