#15 rode the Portland Streetcar

I rode the Portland Oregon Electric Streetcar system to get around downtown -- very clean, very convenient, nice to leave the car parked.

A number of southwest cities have had Portland's transit system presented as a positive model by advocates for local light rail systems. I was favorably impressed by what I saw.

Unfortunately the local Portland news was reporting increased crime on the larger MAX Light Rail system and the need to increase police presence on that system.
