Public transit often produces a lackluster ride, with trains plodding through rush-hour traffic or bus drivers prohibiting recreational use of their vehicle’s ejector seats. Renounce earthbound commutes with today's Groupon: for $4, you get a roundtrip ride for two from Portland Aerial Tram (an $8 value).

One of two aerial tramways designed for public transit in North America, the Portland Aerial Tram ferries riders across the skies between Marquam Hill and Oregon Health and Science University's Center for Health and Healing at South Waterfront. After a 500-foot vertical ascent, riders bask in the panoramic views of the skyline and Cascade Mountains during their trip over I-5, Lair Hill, and the city’s ongoing joust tournament. Hop off at OHSU and indulge in a helping of soft-serve Dreyers ice cream at the main dining room (not included with this Groupon) for a sweet treat between trips, or simply revel in the sights from the sculpture garden or observation desk.

Portland Aerial Tram

Celebrating its 7th anniversary, the iconic Portland Aerial Tram rises above the City of Roses on a cable stretching a full 3,300 linear feet end to end, providing passengers with views impossible to get anywhere else as it travels from its terminal in the city to the Kohler Pavilion on OHSU's campus. To date, it has transported 9.5 million passengers on more than 330,000 trips. The cabin ascends 500 feet into the air and travels at 22 miles per hour, making its trip in three minutes, or roughly one-tenth the length of the average Grateful Dead jam. At the end of the line, riders can enjoy spectacular views of the city from an observation deck equipped with outdoor seating and tables.

Customer Reviews

If you time it just right and go in the evening, you can ride up while it is still daylight, and ride down after dark. Both are pretty in their own ways. We always take out of town visitors for a ride on the Portland Tram and they all love it!!
