Transportation

Lewis & Clark is near downtown Portland (~5 miles), but a little secluded. Your best bet is to rent a car so you can be extremely flexible.

We are working/hoping to secure shuttles to help with the ease of exploring Portland. It’s a great town! Here are some other options and information about how to best get around town:

Parking at the venue

Parking on campus won’t be a problem. They do not require parking passes or payment during the summer.

Rent a car

If possible, we recommend you rent a car for the trip. There are a fair amount of car rental services at the airport.

Ridesharing

Uber and Lyft are available in Portland.

ZipCar

ZipCar is available in the Portland area and has a hub on the Lewis and Clark campus. Visit the ZipCar website for more information.

Metro bus

Portland has a bus system that will take you downtown and has a stop near campus (Bus 39).

However, Bus 39 won’t run on Saturday or Sunday.

Light rail

Portland has a light rail service that runs all over the city and out to the airport.

It does not go to the Lewis & Clark campus but it will help you get around once you’re downtown and take you from downtown to the airport.

Airport

The Portland International Airport is about 15 miles from Lewis & Clark. Be sure to check if your hotel offers a free shuttle ride to and from the airport.
