What area of Portland? I lived in the Tigard area just the other side of the
Beverton city limit, for 18 months, just a few years ago.

I know that Portland has a fairly good bus system.

Around here, last time I road the bus, think that it cost about a doller,
I've heard a rumor that it's up to 1.50 or so.  at that rate, a car is a
better deal even at $1.50 a mile, because of all the time saved, if for
nothing else.
