Transportation

Bike

The location we're at is the meeting point of a few major bike routes: one going East-West, and one going North-South. So whether you're coming from downtown, North Portland, or East Portland or elsewhere, it should be convenient to get here. Here's some bike maps. Also, Google maps obs.

Train

The location is also a nexus for a few train routes. Here's an interactive map. Also, Google maps obs.

Walking

yay! Walking along the river is very nice if it's on your way.

Car

Parking is free at Schnitzer Lot - printable map. However, we encourage people to carpool if possible since there are a couple of other events that day in the building.

Flying

We imagine most people will be local-ish, but if you are flying, we have a great airport, though it's not super big so not a ton of direct flights. You can grab a train from the airport and get all the way here. See above links for trains. Or cab/etc.
