There are a few ways to get to the conference from our international airport, PDX, and get around our area (downtown is about 9 miles away). Here are some helpful bits of information on some common ways to check out the city.
Taxi and ridesharing
Estimated costs from the airport to the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Downtown Portland
- Taxi - Estimated fare: $45 (one way)

TriMet MAX (light rail)
The MAX station and ticket machines are located on the lower level, next to the south baggage claim area (turn right at the base of the escalator). Get off at Morrison/SW 3rd Ave MAX Station (Stop ID 8381). Walk 1/2 mile to Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, Portland. This method of transportation takes about 45 minutes.
