We parked nearby, although spots were very limited. Rode to the top and back with a brief stop to take in the view. Was built for students to go between buildings after they outgrew their original location.

Offers some good views when going up/down the tram and when you're at the top, but that's about it. There's nothing to do up there as most people use the tram to reach the university and hospital up there and not for sightseeing.

Easy to park around the bottom access. Easy to get tickets and great views as you proceed upwards toward OHSU and over freeways, neighborhoods and steep steep hills. Fun for kids too.

This was our first trip to Oregon and we loved it! Portland is easy to navigate with terrific public transportation and the Sky Tram was a fun way to get a great overview of the city skyline and beautiful bridges. No line, no waiting.

Even with fear of heights, this was a fun thing to do. You start down by the river and end up at OHSU. Can stay as long as you want, although the last tram down is at around 4:30 pm. At the top is the...More

As said this tram provides transportation to the hospitals however the ride provides an excellent way to see there are several meditation gardens and we really enjoyed the ride.

On street parking is limited and is ~$2/hr I believe. Also underground parking available nearby for a reasonable price.
