PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: PDX
Portland International Airport: PDX, is a joint civil-military airport and the largest airport in Oregon. It accounts for 90 percent of passenger travel and more than 95 percent of air cargo of the state. The airport is located within Portland‘s city limits just south of the Columbia River in Multnomah County and is 12 miles northeast of Downtown Portland. Portland International Airport has direct connections to most major airport hubs throughout the United States.
Public transit service to the airport is provided by TriMet, the metropolitan area’s primary transit agency, with its MAX Red Line light rail service. The Red Line originally provided service as far as downtown Portland only, but in 2003 was extended beyond downtown, to Beaverton. The light rail station is located only about 150 feet from the airport’s baggage claim area. The Airport also offers a full-service taxi, bus and shuttle area adjacent to the baggage claim that also allows access to rideshare providers.
