Avoid parking hassles, take TriMet to the AIDS Walk


All MAX lines/18 bus lines provide a convenient way to get there

The annual AIDS Walk hosted by the Cascade AIDS Project will take to the streets of downtown Portland on Sunday, September 23 and TriMet is a convenient way to get there. All MAX lines service Pioneer Courthouse Square, the starting point of the walk. Some 18 bus lines provide service into downtown Portland on Sundays as well. Go early for the music and entertainment that begins at 9 a.m.

Service impacts

When the AIDS Walk steps off at 11 a.m., expect some minor delays to MAX trains and buses that cross the route. They will be stopped on and off to let walkers through. Three bus lines – 6, 14 and 15 – will be detoured from their regular routes.

Day passes

Riders should remember the Free Rail Zone no longer exists and a valid fare is required throughout the MAX system. Those taking part in the walk should consider buying a day pass, which is the same price as two 2-hour tickets, due to the convenience of just one purchase.

Day Pass Fares

Adults:                        $5

Youth:                         $3.30

Honored citizens:      $2
