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.
