From bikes to streetcars to trams, Portland is famous for its transportation. And you can see all these modes and more at the corner of SW Moody & Gibbs.
As many as 400 bikes park in the plaza, where Go By Bike offers rentals and free valet. The Portland Aerial Tram soars over the neighborhood every five minutes, offering city views and, on clear days, a direct view of Mount Hood and Mount St Helens.
The streetcar and shuttle buses stop here. You can also arrive by Portland's largest cycle track via Moody, or Portland's largest pedestrian bridge via the Lair Hill neighborhood. Yep, even walking gets a powerful nod in this hub—and the bridge has a viewing deck for taking in the moving buzz of people. Ye olde automobile is also welcome with on-street parking nearby.
Note of disclosure: This writer, as a university transportation guy, has a professional link to some of these services. No one has asked for or compensated for this write up. His personal, insider opinion is simply that this hub is pretty cool!
