Compared to places like New York or Shanghai, Portland isn’t necessarily known for its public transportation; still, for the carless, environmentally conscious, and new urbanists out there, it’s... serviceable. Still, countless buzzy restaurants in Portland are hard to access for those reliant on Trimet, forcing diners to make dreaded bus transfers just to get a bite.
