Portland Streetcar

Portland again has on a unique project for this very livable city, the Portland Streetcar. This line is not like the MAX light rail line. The modern trolley cars on this line share the right of way with other vehicles much as the streetcars of yore. The first line linked Portland State Univ. with the trendy NW Portland. The line was extended twice southwards to new south waterfront district. In 2012 a new line opened to serve the inner East Side of Portland on the other side of the Willamette River. Eventually this line will become a loop. There is still consideration for further lines around the city.
