The Portland Bureau of Transportation reminds the traveling public that the Portland Aerial Tram will be closed starting Saturday, June 23 for five weeks for track cable maintenance. It will resume service on Monday, July 30.
For safety reasons, during the work, the upper tram terminal elevator and upper platform will be closed as well.
During the closure, special shuttles will run daily from 5:15 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Shuttles will arrive at the stops every 5-10 minutes and the trip between campuses will take 30-40 minutes. Tram shuttles will only stop if someone is waiting.
The public is advised to expect delays and plan extra time when traveling between Oregon Health & Science University's South Waterfront and Marquam Hill campuses.
