Tram Open For Shamrock Run, March 17th
The tram will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. this Sunday, March 17th, to allow an easier way to get up the hill due to the closures and congestion from this year’s Shamrock Run.
From 7:20 to 9:30 a.m., SW Terwilliger Blvd. will be closed from Sam Jackson Park Road to as far south as Capitol Highway.
Last year, TriMet ran Line 8 to the Tram that morning instead of up the hill. The route change started at the bus stop on Columbia (stop 12794, just off 5th Street; see it on a map) and went to mid-block on SW Whitaker, next to the Center for Health & Healing. TriMet transfers were accepted as Tram fare. TriMet has confirmed the same arrangement for this year.
