Getting To and From the Airport

Portland International Airport (PDX) is located 9 miles (14.5 km) northeast of downtown Portland and is conveniently connected to the city center via MAX light-rail train.

MAX Light Rail: The MAX Light Rail Red Line is the easiest way to travel to and from the airport. Here are some quick facts:

Shuttle service: When you leave the airport, you will find the shuttles at the bottom entrance of the terminal (outside the baggage claim area) on the other side of the second strip (“Island 2”) near the parking garage. White Van Shuttle operates a service that can be booked in advance for $16 one-way from PDX to the DoubleTree by Hilton.

Uber/Lyft and taxis are also available with fares in the $25–$35 range before gratuity—all depending on arrival times and traffic.
