Portland International Airport
Ground Transportation

Light Rail

MAX Light Rail, or Metropolitan Area Express, is a light rail system consisting of four separate lines (Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow lines) serving 87 stations in the Portland metropolitan area in Oregon. The Read Line serves Portland International Airport. Trains run every 15 minutes from early in the morning until late at night, even on weekends.

MAX uses a proof-of-payment system; riders must carry a receipt at all times. Fares are purchased before boarding, and receipt is retained as proof of paid fare. Passengers must board the train before the receipt's expiration, and are allowed to ride past the time on the receipt, provided the train was boarded before the expiration time. Receipts are good for 2 hours after purchase, and can be used an unlimited number of times, for travel in any direction, as well as for buses, Portland Streetcar, and C-Tran. From 1986 until 2012, TriMet's fare system was zonal, or distance-based, with higher fares for longer rides, and three fare zones (five until 1988). However, in September 2012 the agency discontinued all use of fare zones. Transfer receipts from buses are also valid fare on MAX, provided they have not expired before boarding.

Fares vary depending on age etc. but are always less than $3 for a one way trip, and a low as $1 for seniors, and free for accompanied children under 7.
