Get to know the Tram
To commemorate 7 million riders and five years as an iconic part of the city’s skyline, the Portland Aerial Tram declares June “Get to Know the Tram” month. Free, family-friendly festivities, including guided tours, bicycle rides and hikes, art exhibits and classes, and partnerships with Portland Children’s Museum and Ritz Camera, are planned for weekends throughout the month.
Each weekend of activities during “Get to Know the Tram Month” is organized around a theme. They include:
Engineering and Development, June 9–10, will explore how the Tram works and what the future holds for the South Waterfront District.
Biking and Hiking, June 16–17, will help Portland’s weekend warriors know where to go, what to see, and how the Tram can play a part in their adventures.
Arts and the Tram, June 23–24, will feature an exhibit of work by local painters, filmmakers, and photographers who have been inspired by the Tram. Ritz Camera will also conduct free photography classes, which can be found at RitzCamera.com.
