Portland Aerial Tram Tour - Members Only

05:00 PM - 07:00 PM Pacific Standard Time



Behind the scenes tour of the Portland Aerial Tram.

The Portland Aerial Tram, the result of an innovative public-private partnership, is now 10 years old. Besides being a catalyst for growth in the South Waterfront District, it provides a crucial connection between OHSU’s Marquam Hill and South Waterfront campuses. Making about 200 trips a day and carrying 10,000+ passengers, it is one of the busiest trams in the United States.

Next summer, the Tram will close down for 5 weeks in order to shift the four track ropes, each of which hold about 124,000 pounds of tension. Come learn more about the Tram, the planned maintenance and hear how OHSU plans to mitigate this closure.

  • 5-6 pm: Happy hour at Cha Cha Cha, 3135 SW Moody Ave, snacks provided
  • 6-7 pm: Tram Tour, 3303 SW Bond Ave

Sign up today - this tour is limited to 30 people.
