Transportation and Hotels


Transportation

From Downtown Portland to Campus

  • Pioneer Express Shuttle: Operated by Lewis & Clark, the Pioneer Express Shuttle provides free service between downtown Portland and the undergraduate campus (be sure to note the different weekday and weekend schedules). On Friday the first bus leaves from PSU at 7:10 am. It is an hourly service bus with a fixed route. The trip is some 30 mns-long. If prompted by the driver, simply indicate that you are a participant in the LALISA Conference at the undergraduate campus. We strongly recommend using this resource.  When you arrive at the undergraduate campus, the shuttle will stop at the Templeton Campus Center, which is the conference site. Enter Templeton at the Street Level to access Stamm Hall, where registration will be located. 

From Portland International Airport to Campus

  • TriMet Bus and MAX Light Rail: TriMet, the Portland area’s public transportation system, offers bus, light rail, and streetcar services. MAX light rail (red line) goes directly from the airport to downtown. (To visit campus, get off at the Pioneer Courthouse Square stop and take the Pioneer Express Shuttle at PSU (SW Broadway and Hall), to Lewis & Clark.). TriMet runs the bus 39 to campus but this one does not leave from downtown. For schedule information, please call 503-238-7433 or visit www.trimet.org.
